Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.24-5
Severity: wishlist

I wanted to apply a patch to the kernel yesterday, and after running
into problems with make-kpkg, I found

http://wiki.debian.org/HowToRebuildA...nKernelPackage

and adopted the method. I even rewrote most of the wiki page to make
sure it applies. Comments welcome, of course.

My problem now is that the single kernel variant instructions only
yield 8 packages:

linux-image-2.6.24-1+foo.1-686_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb
linux-headers-2.6.24-1+foo.1-686_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb
linux-support-2.6.24-1+foo.1-686_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb
linux-tree-2.6.24_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb
linux-patch-debian-2.6.24_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb
linux-source-2.6.24_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb
linux-manual-2.6.24_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb
linux-doc-2.6.24_2.6.24-5+foo.1_i386.deb

Unfortunately, linux-headers-2.6.24-1+foo.1-686 depends on
linux-headers-2.6.24-1+foo.1-common, but that is not being created
until I build binary-arch_i386, which takes infinitely longer.

Shouldn't the binary-arch_i386_none_686 target build the common
headers too, since its result depends on them?
