THe problem with maintaining your own kernel is keeping up-to-date with
(1) security fixes
(2) hardware issues

A slightly simpler route would be building a slightly-modified
linux-image package (same source, minimal code modifications).

It would still break all automatically-built modules (linux-modules-extra
(?)),  but then all users will need to do is build modules with m-a .
