Thanks for the suggestion. I tried to recompile my own kernel (Debian
kernel-source-2.6.8) and it appeared to be using the config from my
existing kernel-image package. KeyWest was compiled in (not as a
module), so I don't think it is too likely to work when it is a module.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to try this out because make-kpkg
fails at building the debian/buildinfo file :-(.
