The kernel module is included in the rawhide (and only rawhide)
kernels, however it is not enabled by default.  A user needs to
explicitly specify kdbus=1 on their kernel cmdline to enable kdbus.
The reason being that we do not want to have rawhide default to
something that is not going to ship in the next release, and we are
not going to include the kdbus code in the kernel on a stable release
until it is merged upstream.
