1.- Add yourself to the "src" group (/usr/src/ belongs to root.src)
2.- Check that /usr/src/modules belongs to root.src, and has the sticky
    bit on:

    $ls -lsd /usr/src/modules/
   4 drwxrwsr-x    2 root     src          4096 Jun 26 15:34 /usr/src/modules//

    If not, change it

    $ sudo chown root.src /usr/src/modules
    $ sudo chmod g+sw /usr/src/modules

1.- uncompress modules sources as yourself (not root) in
2.- go to your kernel-tree and 
    $ fakeroot make-kpkg ....

Hope this helps,
