SubjectRe: rtlwifi-new v0.6 and dkms failures

As it tuns out, I was able to create a new dkms.conf file which works on
my system. Below is  copy of the content from that file:

MAKE="make -C $kernel_source_dir
CLEAN="make -C $kernel_source_dir clean"

This also had the benefit of module signing by the version of dkms in
Ubuntu 19.04, so I am now also back on secure boot.

No action on your part is requested at this time.  Feel free to use the
new dkms.conf content if it is useful to you.
