Had a quick look (not very detailed), and generally it looks good.
Not terribly convinced that line 32 in the Dockerfile is the ideal solution:
RUN bash -c 'ln -sf $(cd /usr/src; ls -d linux-headers-*-generic | tail
This looks very much like a hack for me. I can see that on a generic
build environment there's little point in depending on the running
kernel's version, but such symlinks can be causing other trouble.
Setting the KERN_DIR env variable sounds like the clean solution to me.
