I can't find context, but:
-- make-kpkg modules-image looks for directories in /usr/src/modules,
and tries to build a third-party module from each of them;
-- make-kpkg modules does the same, but also GPG-signs the result;
-- you don't need to do either if you've just selected modules in the
kernel configuration, since those modules wind up in the normal
It sounds like what's going on is that, at some point, you installed
i2c-source and unpacked /usr/src/i2c.tar.gz, and now 'make-kpkg
modules-image' is going off and building that. That's the expected
behavior. If you don't want i2c or anything else in /usr/src, you're

modules, you really really don't want i2c enabled in the kernel, at
