I agree that having custom made systemd service configuration for dkms
might be cool, but it's not that dkms is completely useless right now.
Systemd works without any problems with legacy init scripts:

etam at etam-laptop:~> sudo systemctl status dkms_autoinstaller.service
root's password:
dkms_autoinstaller.service - LSB: Automatically install DKMS modules for
new kernels
          Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/dkms_autoinstaller)
          Active: active (exited) since Fri, 30 Nov 2012 09:39:53 +0100;
1h 53min ago
         Process: 520 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/dkms_autoinstaller start
(code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/dkms_autoinstaller.service

Nov 30 09:39:52 etam-laptop dkms_autoinstaller[520]: Running DKMS auto
installation service for kernel
Nov 30 09:39:53 etam-laptop dkms_autoinstaller[520]: bbswitch (0.5)
Nov 30 09:39:53 etam-laptop dkms_autoinstaller[520]: Done.
Nov 30 09:39:53 etam-laptop dkms_autoinstaller[520]: Done.

The only thing you might to after installation of dkms is to check if
it's enabled (and enable it if necessary by "sudo systemctl enable

Of course there is no /lib/systemd/system/dkms_autoinstaller.service
file, but because there is /etc/init.d/dkms_autoinstaller systemd
behaves like there was one.

By the way:
Could someone do something with this
