[ snip of apt/dpkg replacing custom kernel.. ] 

  the problem you're having is that the package on the debian end is
coming up as a higher version number than you're make-kpkg compiled
one.  I had this problem for a while, and I fixed it by using
epochs in my local versions..   i.e. make-kpkg --version 4:custom.4
kernel_image ..  This seemed to fix all my problems, and hopefully
they won't ever get an epoch of 4 on the archive versions :P
