Instead of 'make-kpkg kernel-image', I use 'make-kpkg buildpackage'.
I wind up with redundant -source, -headers, etc. packages, but hey,
disk is cheap.  Similarly, 'make-kpkg modules' instead of
modules-image.  (And to get this to work, you need to generate a GPG
key, which is probably a good idea anyways, and make sure that you
have the right name and email in /etc/kernel-pkg.conf.)
