Default Bug#475674: source package rules.gen build does not generate -common headers

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


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:


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?
