Yes. I couldn't be booting the new kernel if I hadn't.
Anyway, I did find the Debian Reference Chapter 7 (
) which helpfully says:

--initrd requires a Debian-only cramfs patch
but which unhelpfully doesn't say how to get the damn patch!
Next, it says:

No it does not, all you have to do to use a filesystem other
than CRAMFS is to set MKIMAGE in /etc/mkinitrd/mkinitrd.conf.
Of course, it doesn't say anything about what you can set MKIMAGE to
My etc/mkinitrd/mkinitrd.conf says:
MKIMAGE='mkcramfs %s %s > /dev/null'
but no other mk*fs executable on my system takes the same arguments
that mkcramfs does.
It seems that make-kpkg can only build Debian-customized kernel source
unless you really know what you're doing.
Any pointers to how to build a generic kernel (with make-kpkg)?
