	It sets the debian revision without me having to remember to
 do so all the time.

	I fail to see why my approach would cause you a
 problem. Indeed, I think it would save you disk space.

	Ok. I like to upgfrade between kernel version using patches
 from ftp.us.kernel.org; so I need to keep a source tree in as near a
 pristine state as I can.

	So, here is what I do. 

	Once I have /usr/local/src/kernel/linux-2.4.20, say, I do

 last_version=2.4.18                        # I never went for 2.4.19
 for machine in kallissin ember smaug scatha glaurung, tiamat ;do
   mkdir $machine
   scp $machine:/boot/config-$last_version $machine/.config
   cd $machine
   lndir ../linux-2.4.20
   cd ..

 for machine in kallissin ember smaug scatha glaurung, tiamat ;do
   if [ -f . configdirs/$machine ]; then
     . configdirs/$machine
     # $patches is now either empty, or it has --added-patches=a,b
   cd $machine
   make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --append-to-version $machine \
       $patches $modules kernel_image
   if [ "X$modules" != "X" ]; then
      fakeroot make-kpkg  --append-to-version $machine \
           $patches $modules modules_image
   make-kpkg clean

	See? Each lndir directory only has files that were patched, or
 object files; and the ../linux-2.4.20 is pristine, ready to be
 patched up to 2.4.21.
