I have 2.6.4 working with the realtime-0.0.4 module. I didn't have time 
to investigate getting it to fit into a debian kernel package, so I just 
made it separately again and continue to insmod it from 

I did take a quick look at the make-kpkg man page. The --added-modules 
foo option might be of interest. I think it's meant to build modules 
from source directories outside the kernel tree and perhaps include them 
in the kernel deb package(?). But, I didn't have chance to play with it.
