I don't know the answer to your questions, but it turns out we don't
provide kldxref yet.  Untill we do it's out of the question to rely on
it :-)

I'm making a bug out of this so that it's not forgotten.

Btw, my port of DKMS also assumes that modules may only be installed
in the top directory in /lib/modules/$KVER/ (which is true currently).
