If you have compiled the kernel the Debian-Way with

make-kpkg --append-to-version mykernel --revision1 --config menuconfig \
configure binary-arch

You had gotten two paclages, the kernel-image and kernel-headers or

make-kpkg --append-to-version mykernel --revision1 --config menuconfig \
configure binary

to get kernel-source and kernel-doc too.

Normaly it is enough to install the right Kernel-Headers to compile
additional modules.

Which mean you need:

1)  kernel-headers   FOR YOUR KERNEL

2)  pcmcia-source   because you need to recompile the whole stuff

Do it your self

Everybody which compiles the kernel self, need to compile the right
pcmcia-cs modules too, which mean, no one can do it for you except
you can give out the kernel-headers
