I've verified that the version of dkms, 2.3-3ubuntu1.2, in zesty-
proposed now does the right thing.

Backing up initrd.img-4.10.0-19-generic to /boot/initrd.img-4.10.0-19-generic.old-dkms
Making new initrd.img-4.10.0-19-generic
(If next boot fails, revert to initrd.img-4.10.0-19-generic.old-dkms image)

DKMS: uninstall completed.
