Package: nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-source
Version: 96.43.07-2
Severity: normal


building the drivers with explicit fakeroot fails:

Module /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx failed.
Perhaps /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx does not understand --rootcmd?
If you see messages that indicate that it is not
in fact being built as root, please file a bug
against /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx.
Hit return to Continue

This looks like an extra fakeroot is hardcoded into the package, which
is broken behavior. Instead, the code should check whether it is
already runnign as root or faked root.
