Could your problem be the missing "=":-
make-kpkg --revision*=*1??

"You may use alphanumeric characters, "+" and "." (period or full stop);
do not use underscore "_" or spaces, = is required"

Also you order the process differently, not sure if that matters, at a
minimum I'd use:-
make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers

I'd normally use something like:-
make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=custom kernel_image

Perhaps someone else can tell whether the syntax (=), and/or the order
is important?
