The kernel is one of the "special" packages in Debian.  The package
does not use the normal Debian rules for building.  At one time there
was a *HUGE* discussion about converting it to a normal Debian
package but it met with stiff resistance.

The kernel-source is a binary package created at package build time
and is distributed like a binary package.  So it is in the 'deb' area
and not the 'deb-src' area.
