Please don't tell module authors to unconditionally use `uname -r`.
I frequently build kernels for differentd hosts, and if I don't, I'll
certainly compile the needed modules before installing the kernel.
Therefore /lib/modules/`uname -r` is most certainly the completely
wrong place to look for the kernel source.
