I stumbled over this one when trying to compile the ALSA modules, took
me a whole day to find why ...

"modversions.h" is a file being created in the kernel compiling
process. You have to build a new *kernel* before beeing able to make a
modules package. Don't do a "make-kpkg clean" after that, because the
file will be deleted by the cleaning up. Just proceed with making the
modules package.
