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. :)
