Bug#405810: Please provide package with vmlinuX, similar to kernel-debuginfo on redhat

Package: linux-source-2.6.18
Severity: wishlist

To use oprofile with kernel profiling enabled, we need the uncompressed version 
of the kernel image, vmlinux.
When using the debian kernel image this is not possible, it is required to take
the kernel sources and to compile a new image with "make vmlinux".
I saw on http://bonglonglong.com/2006/12/06/oprofile-kernel-images-and-innodb-oh-my/
that this is much easier on redhat which features a package called kernel-debuginfo
So could we also have sth like linux-debuginfo-2.6.18-1-686_i386.deb ?
