Hey, finally someone with the same problem... I posted about this weeks ago.

Well, anyway, as it turns out this problem actually goes away as soon as you boot into the new kernel (at least that's what happened when I tried it).

I simply installed the packet, disregarded the warning and booted into the new kernel and everything worked just fine.

That's right. Same thing happens in my case when I do:

make-kpkg --revision 1 kernel_image modules_image

the kernel_image deb will be the new kernel and the modules_image a deb for lm-sensor modules that have to go into the new kernel.

When you install the modules deb you will get unresolved symbols because the running kernel is not the same. Goes away when you boot with the new kernel.
