Are you sure it can't????

Are you sure this won't work:

1 login as root.
2 upack modules into /usr/src/modules.
3 unpack kernel (anywhere) and build using make-kpkg, eg:
  make-kpkg kernel_image
4 in the same directory:
  make-kpkg modules

and for all the modules I have looked at, it just works...

If you find a module where it doesn't work, please file a bug.

The only limitation I have found is you need to ensure that
the unpacked module source is up-to-date.

(note: for some reason pcmcia-modules requires you really are root,
otherwise it won't build. Even if you have write permission to
/usr/src/modules. Don't ask me why...)
