The best advice I can give is to not start from scratch creating your own 
kernel, but base it on the kernel d-i uses and only make the changes you 
need. The configs used for d-i are the same as those used in the 
corresponding official Debian kernels, so you can use the 
file /boot/config-... from the correct kernel-image package as a base.

How to create kernel udebs and build the installer from that is documented 
in [1], which is linked from the "Additional links" page of our wiki [2].
