Thanks for the tip.  While looking at this file, I discovered
a circumvention.  Use the make variable


This works, even with an unmodified builddeb script.  In my test case,
I set CONFIG_LOCALVERSION to "-1custom01-s390x" during kernel configuration
(under "General Setup").  I also set CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO off.   (This is under
"Kernel Hacking".)  Then I issued

   make KDEB_PKGVERSION=3.14.4-1 KBUILD_PKG_ROOTCMD=fakeroot \

as a non-root user.  It built a kernel image package just the way I wanted it.
