requirements for building a kernel module

I was wondering what would be the minimal requirements
(packages/settings) in order to build a kernel module that is external
to the kernel source tree using make-kpkg --added-modules for a stock
debian kernel.

I've been trying to give some answers on installing dri but I am using
a patched vanilla kernel so I don't know the answer to that one.

Can I settle for only the kernel headers package or do I need the
kernel-source package. Also does it come with a default .config file,
does make xconfig + save build the default .config or should I plug in
the .config from the kernel-package (probably the last ones due to the
different variants, right ;-)
