I don't mean to butt in to a private conversation here, gentlemen,
but I too have noticed the problem with kernel-package and Linux 3.x,
and I have published an unofficial patch that seems to enable it to work.
The patch is available here
I refer to this patch on my kernel-building web page
As I state in my web page, this is an unofficial patch: it is not
provided by, nor endorsed by, the upstream author or the Debian
package maintainer for kernel-package (i.e. Manoj). It seems to
work for me and for my purposes, but I do not warrant the patch
to be free from defects. Take this with as many grains of salt
as you think it's worth.
P.S. kernel-package is also incompatible with make 3.82
