Since -di kernels are not merged into the common linux-2.6 kernels (for
whatever reason, we are not arguing that now), it is only normal that you
can't expect them to be in synch like you want wit hthe kernel .debs.
That said, the -di kernels are just repackaged .deb kernels, and so if you
build modules for all .deb official flavours, the same tool who generate the
kernel .udebs can also generate module .udebs from those modules .debs.
(mmm, that was complicated, i hope you get the idea of it).
