If you use the 'kernel-package' Debian package, things will work
exactly this way.

You just run make menuconfig/config/xconfig/whatever, and then run:

make-kpkg --revision whatever.1.0 kernel_image

(you can replace 'whatever' with whatever ;)

and voila! you'll have a new .deb package of your kernel and modules
and other assorted goodies in /usr/src. :)
