Some time ago I wrote a Howto about that topic. "Creating a kernel
with CTX patch the Debian way."
It's for Debian/Sarge, and it's german. But the commands should be
self-explaining and will give you a general idea. It uses the
kernel source package and "make-kpkg". It's a very elegant way
to produce a Debian package containing your new patched kernel.
If someone is really interested in that Howto, I'd translate it
