Basically it's the source + the debian/ dir, as it's just a DKMS module, and 
it's not a hard task to maintain it. The problem is I don't really know how to 
push it into Debian repository and maintain it there. I could maintain the 
debian/ dir here, as I already prepared it for building a .deb package via
pbuilder/dpkg-buildpackage, and it builds nicely.

I included the debian/ dir, so you can take a look at it.
