It sounds like you're looking at the linux source package. I would
certainly not suggest using that for local custom packages; it's meant
The simple alternative is already included in the kernel tree itself:
It does generate some extra packages (linux-headers and linux-libc-dev)
but that doesn't take very long. The generated packages don't support
/etc/kernel-img.conf but they do support hooks in /etc/kernel.

Bug #890817 also looks like it may be a big problem for current kernel
versions, but apparently you have avoided it.
