[ovs-dev] [PATCH ] debian: place kernel module to satisfy depmod search.

On Ubuntu depmod's search priority is configured in /etc/depmod to be
updates and then the kernel built-in directory.
$ cat /etc/depmod.d/ubuntu.conf 
search updates ubuntu built-in

Thus change the placement of openvswitch.ko under updates/ not kernel/updates.
