As Allan noted DKMS is the ideal solution to that

still a reason for me to avoid it. I currently have DKMS in place
for zfsonlinux on some of my systems and don't want the added pain of
multiple DKMS installations.
FYI, 'dkms mkbmdeb' now actually works to create a binary-only package.
It didn't do anything that was actually useful for years, but that was
fixed earlier this year.
Unfortunately, it doesn't add a Provides: line, so you'll need to use
equivs to satisfy dependencies.

actually, it does now. the bug report I submitted about this has been
closed, somebody submitted a patch back in October. I didn't get an
email telling me though (BTS has always been a bit unreliable about
email notifications in my experience)
Doesn't KVM/Qemu work with MS-DOS and MS-Win?
yep, it does.
Virtualbox has better graphics support for the VM without messing around
with PCI passthrough and installing a second GPU card, which generally
only matters for games and other things that really need good, fast
I've used KVM with a few Win XP & Win 7 VMs. Works well enough. If I
wanted to play windows games with KVM, I'd probably install another GPU.
