Bug#1802: source.deb package has unexpected Debian subdirectory

It's a feature! The /usr/src/linux directory can re-build all of the
Debian kernel packages ("image", "includes", and "source") using itself
as the source. The Debian sub-directory and the debian.rules file are
necessary for this functionality. I felt this was the most elegant
solution to the problem of maintaining the kernel packages. The additional
files take up little space.
