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.
