bbswitch-dkms depends on dkms, which should pull in the correct
linux-headers package by itself (although dkms just recommends
linux-headers instead of depending on it), so this is not a bug in
either bumblebee or bbswitch. If you have configured apt to not
install recommended packages, either revert that, or take care of
installing the appropriate linux-headers package yourself.
