Package: aufs-dkms
Version: 4.8+20161219-1
Severity: important

Installing aufs-dkms doesn't compile and install the kernel module via

I re-checked by running dkms on the command line:

root at debian:~# dkms install -m aufs -v 4.8+20161219

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...
