That should be possible.

? I don't understand you here. What do you mean by toolchain -- GCC,
make, kernel-devel are needed of course -- but they are also needed by
DKMS afaics. 

But the solution I dream of is a two way solution -- make the kernel-
module build automatically if everything needed to do it is installed.
If not use the old kernel until all kernel-modules are ready and/or
download them with yum (what about apt?) automatically if available.
