Description: The fixdep script seems to be linked to the wrong glibc version:

ldd /usr/lib/modules/5.4.95-1-lts/build/scripts/basic/fixdep
/usr/lib/modules/5.4.95-1-lts/build/scripts/basic/fixdep: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.33' not found (required by /usr/lib/modules/5.4.95-1-lts/build/scripts/basic/fixdep)

At the point of writing, glibc is at version 2.32. glibc 2.33 is only available in the testing repo.
So the fix would be one of the following:
- Rebuild linux-lts-headers to link against glibc 2.32
- Release glibc 2.33 to the general public by moving it out of testing

Right now all dkms hooks fail to build, because the fixdep script cannot start. Attached is one such failed dkms build.

I can confirm this as well. I have the same error for the same module.

HOWEVER, the severity of this bug needs to be moved to HIGH or CRITICAL. It must affect any dkms install on this kernel, Nvidia-dkms will fail as well with the identical error.

It is specific to this kernel, to test this I installed `linux-zen` as well as it's headers and both my nvidia as well as the loopback module installed successfully with no errors.

Obviously if the nvidia-dkms drivers fail to install the bug is much more important than just a "Low" priority.

I do see that glibc 2.33-2 is in testing but it is not in the standard repos yet.
