Lets look at those stats:
2.6.18: broken debs causing build-depends to fail
2.6.19rc6: same errors as 2.6.20, assuming same packaging error
2.6.19: linux source broken (missing header)
2.6.20: linux-2.6 packagin broken
Is there even one log there with make-kpkg failure? I spot checked a
bunch of failed logs, those earliest for an upstream release and none
of them are make-kpkg failures.

I would say quite the opposite. What is breaking for me (as user) is
the mixture of linux-2.6 hacks with make-kpkg. Lets remove all those
hacks by reporting feature requests to kernel-package where needed and
make linux-2.6 use make-kpkg properly.
