I don't actually use multi-processor stuff myself, but what you are
looking for *might* be in kernel-pkg.conf (see the appropriate man page
and look for CONCURRENCY_LEVEL). You'll probably want to set this to 2.
This has actually come up before on debian-user. Check google with
"concurrency level make-kpkg" and you'll get some hits. I'm using the
version of kernel-package, though. I don't know whether this option is in
the kernel-package in potato.
