Default Bug#611382: linux-2.6: Provide all packaging instructions in linux-source package

Package: linux-2.6
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

I am working on cross toolchain packages for Ubuntu. During work on 10.10 'maverick'
release I got it working and now want to add it also to Debian archive.

To get it done I need some changes to be done in linux-2.6 packaging. None of them
affects backward compatibility - they extend it a bit. This bug report is about first
change - adding debian/ directory to linux-source package so it could be possible to
rebuild linux kernel/headers/includes packages just from contents of linux-source
binary package.

I need this to get my armel-cross-toolchain-base package be able to generate
linux-libc-dev package during cross compiler boostrap process (which is automated
and occurs on buildd in two source packages).

-- System Information:
Debian Release: 6.0
APT prefers unstable
APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (1, 'experimental')
Architecture: amd64 (x86_64)

Kernel: Linux 2.6.37-12-generic
Locale: LANG=C, LC_CTYPE=C (charmap=ANSI_X3.4-1968)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash

The upstream kernel supports "make deb-pkg" to build packages. For
everything else use the _source_ package.

The linux-libc-dev package exists in the target architecture. Use this
package.

I do not want "make deb-pkg" which will build kernel which I will ignore as I
need only linux-libc-dev for target architecture (which != build
architecture).

Source package in Debian can not depend on packages for other architectures
and there is no linux-libc-dev-armel-cross in amd64/i386 archive. It can not
also depend on source packages. Unless something changed in last months...

2.6.38-rcX make deb-pkg generates the linux-libc-dev for specific arch.
if not report bugs on linux-kbuild mailinglist.

thanks.
