copy it into config/chroot_local-includes and set LIVE_LINUX_PACKAGES=none
don't forget to compile your kernel with unionfs and squashfs modules,
and an initrd.

you need to follow the debian scheme, e.g. placing the files in /boot as
vmlinuz-$version and initrd.img-$version etc.
i personally wouldn't go that way which is too much of a hassle, and
just use make-kpkg to produce custom kernel deb packages. they should
integrate nicely if you just put them into chroot/config_local-packages
and set LIVE_LINUX_PACKAGES=none.
