The problem is in the patch snippet below.  It sets the EXTRAVERSION which is 
now apparently against Debian policy.  If you find a kernel patch package 
that touches EXTRAVERSION then file a bug report asking that it be removed.

Also you should probably file a wishlist bug report against kernel-package 
requesting that it report this BEFORE compilation to save you wasting time 
waiting for a compile that is eventually aborted.
