Not sure. I see two options, to make sure the kernel modules are
- compile the source with the new kernel when the new kernel is
installed. Not sure how to hook this into debian.
- compile the source when the system boot. This might be too late if
the kernel module is needed to access the disk or other hardware
required to boot.
There might be other options as well. I believe I read something
about some people working on a system to rebuild kernel modules at
boot time when the kernel change. I have not tracked down this
solution, so I do not know anything more.
