This does work to build kernel packages, so I don't need howtos about
building kernels. I asked for help regarding the issues I experienced,
IOW I ask for tips for editing the config and to check if building
modules fails without compiling.

Perhaps we discussed it more than once at Debian user, since once
fakeroot environments failed when building Debian kernel packages.
Fakeroot didn't fail for me, since I run my build scripts as root.
