I talk about packages (like alsa, em8300, lmsensors) where packages have
programs _and_ kernel modules.

And when I upgrade my kernel, I must recompile all the modules but _only_
the modules.

Because of it I need a way to recompile it. And -source packages and
make-kpkg give me the solution.

And it's icing on the cake that make-kpkg set the include patch rights.
