I've always just done something like: 

--revision=M1 (M2, M3, etc., as I go along)

knowing that those will always supersede any digits that the normal
distro uses.

If you use the epoch, like:

--revision=2:1 (epoch 2, revision 1)

would you automatically get revision 2 when it appears on the Debian
site and you do the upgrade?  (None of this seems to be documented in
man make-kpkg).

Or do I have it *totally* wrong?
