kdbus does indeed only support recent kernels, i.e. 4.1. Any idea how
this can be expressed in the dkms config?

The dkms.conf has MAKE[0]="make KVER=$kernelver", but the actual
makefiles use KERNELVER.
Could you /usr/src/kdbus-20150901t074837.245fe93/dkms.conf
and use
MAKE[0]="make KERNELVER=$kernelver" instead

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
