See /usr/share/doc/libc6/README.Debian.gz  It provides a full
explanation.

It has nothing to do with make-kpkg.  It's a glibc thing.  If you
*really* want to take care of the problem then the solution is to
rebuild glibc with every kernel you install.  That's generally not
necessary, though, since very few people will ever run in to a problem.
