This discussion in the Debian FAQ also needs fixing:

The FAQ should also describe all the differences between the "Debian
way" of compiling kernels and what is described in the README file in
the kernel sources, preferably with supporting explanations.
FWIW, I installed kernel-headers- 2.0.30-8, then renamed the
/usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm directories and installed the
symlinks. That was the only way I saw to compile a kernel module that
was not part of the regular kernel sources.
