Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 185.18.14-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

During build nvidia kernel module I spotted following warning:

dh_builddeb  --destdir=
Option destdir requires an argument
dh_builddeb: warning: unknown options will be a fatal error in a future debhelper release

I build the package using debian/rules binary_modules

In debian/rules file there is call:
dh_builddeb  --destdir=$(KPKG_DEST_DIR)
I believe that KPKG_DEST_DIR is passed from caller via command line. In such
case adding following line:


somewhere at the begining of rules file is sufficient and shall not break
