At the very least, the above bug report illustrates that there
are known problems with kernel-package with the 3.0 kernel.
I assume that Manoj is working on it.
My understanding is that the Debian Kernel Team recommends using the
'make deb-pkg' target now; they argued that kernel-package should be
considered deprecated, but Manoj wanted to continue supporting it since
so many people have used it for so long and there is nothing really
wrong with it (until now, though it's probably easy to fix).
I just finished building my first linux-3.0 custom kernel using the
deb-pkg target, and everything works fine. (I frequently test
cutting-edge upstream changes to the radeon driver and mesa, and these
often involve changes to the radeon DRM in the kernel.)
I was a long-time user of make-kpkg, but since I learned how to use the
in-kernel deb-pkg target I have been taking the Debian Kernel Team's
advice and recommending building custom kernels that way.
