Policy for kernel modules ?

I'd like to package the u2fs alternative UFS filesystem module. The  
source consists of a patch to the kernel sources (additions to include and  
config files) and a new directory ./fs/u2fs for the kernel. The resulting  
binary is a kernel module.

Is there a policy how to handle such kernel module packages, esp. such  
involving patches to kernel source files ? The joystick package doesn't  
need to patch the kernel...


[PS: A newbie question: What do I have to do to compile the module so  
that it can be used with an existing kernel-image ?]
