Hmm, didn't see the email from Devolder. Having written the initial
nvidia-beta-all package, I can assure you that nvidia-beta-all (and
nvidia-all which Det maintains) builds the modules for all installed
kernels. uname -r is not used at all, a bit of sed hackery lists down
the installed kernels and builds nvidia modules for each of them.
