The kernel build wiki shows you how to build a single flavour. The lrm
build can be reduced to just this flavour by editing debian/rules and
editing the flavours list. The only other thing is to make sure the ABI
number matches the kernel you just built. Then you can build as a normal
debian package would be built.
