There are to solutions:
1) Set your kernel-* packages on "hold", then they won't get upgraded
automatically. You can do this in dselect with '='. This is IMHO
the better solution.
2) You can also compile your kernel with an "epoch" in the revision
(--revision=3:foo.1.0, for example). Then, the kernel will only be
upgraded, if the original kernel .deb has a higher epoch
(currently, it's 3, afaik).
