i would add GST as well as it's usually customized/patched. i would also
like to be able to

1- use systemtap with a cross compiled .deb kernel
2- use dkms with a cross compiled .deb kernel (see
https://bugs.launchpad.net/dkms/+bug/666267 which has been set as won't fix

the point is that using a cross compile .deb kernel is nice since we very
often rebuild kernel, but we have out-of-tree modules (like for graphics
acceleration) that are using dkms... honestly i am not too sure about what
the exact problem is, but since you are asking for intputs ;-)

i think both 1 and 2 are related since using systemtap requires to build a
kernel module on the target (like dkms).
