I'll usually run fakeroot make-kpkg ...  I've never needed that --

I don't know. What I could suggest you to do is this:

make-kpkg --revision... build
fakeroot make -f debian/rules kernel-image-deb
fakeroot make-kpkg modules_image

The above sequence has never failed me. It builds the kernel without a
fakeroot jail, and does the install-and-create-a-deb pass inside a single
fakeroot jail.

I dislike compiling the modules under fakeroot (and the fakeroot docs do
warn not to do this), but ALSA seems not to mind it. Anyway, I dislike the
horrible idea of compiling something as true root much more, so... (and I've
not checked for another way to do it yet. Might as well go read the source
of kernel-package and file a bug if there isn't one...)

This suggests a bug in kernel-package. It's not wrapping the *whole*
install-and-create-the-deb pass with the root wrapper, apparently.
