DKMS stands for Dynamic Kernel Module Support. It is designed to create
a framework where kernel dependant module source can reside so that it
is very easy to rebuild modules as you upgrade kernels. This will allow
Linux vendors to provide driver drops without having to wait for new
kernel releases while also taking out the guesswork for customers
attempting to recompile modules for new kernels.
