There is a good article here on debian kernel compilation. May be useful

You're arbitrarily nuking things from the source tree. Don't do that.
:-) You need to enable a couple of meta-items in the kernel config
(e.g. "support for hot-pluggable devices" and the generic top-level
"Wireless LAN" option), but not enable specific device drivers (e.g.
"PCMCIA/CardBus support"). If you don't enable the options in the
kernel configuration, they won't get built by the kernel build, and
won't conflict with the pcmcia-cs modules.
