the modules_image target is a little non-obvious.  This does *NOT* refer
to modules within the base kernel since these are included within the
kernel-image .deb (you can confirm this with a "dpkg -L").

Instead, it refers to third party modules that are installed in
/usr/src/modules.  For every subdirectory in that location, modules_image
will compile against the target kernel and create a .deb of that.

Under i386 you might use this for the lm-sensors modules or nvidia kernel
modules.  Most people will never use it - I've never used it on my sparc
