make-kpkg clean
make-kpkg --revision=custom.1 .......
make [x|menu]config
make-kpkg clean
make-kpkg --revision=custom.2 .......

But then you will have problems in /lib/modules since they both install
a 2.2.12 directory.

There is also the flavour option, the man for make-kpkg says you need a
patched kernel but I think the 2.2.x series of kernels does not require

make-kpkg clean
make-kpkg --revision=custom.1 --flavour=-allmod .......
make [x|menu]config
make-kpkg clean
make-kpkg --revision=custom.2 --flavour=-nomod  .......

Then the modules will be put in /lib/modules/2.2.12-allmod and
2.2.12-nomod respectively and the kernel will know which dir to look in.

Note that the - is necessary in the flavour field or else you will get
