I believe this is the default in the .config for the kernel source.

Then select it...

I didn't see the earlier thread to which you refer. That could explain
why I'm a little confused, but I'll try to answer anyway.

To what package do you refer?

If you are trying to compile a kernel with make-kpkg, you still need to
configure the kernel (eg "make menuconfig"), before "make-kpkg
kernel-image". If you already have a suitable configuration just copy
it to /usr/src/linux/.config (or wherever your kernel source lives).

Have you looked at the docs in /usr/share/doc/kernel-package?
