I use that all the time, through the scripts in Debian's "kernel-package":
cd /usr/local/src/linux
cp /boot/config-some-recent-version .config
make oldconfig
fakeroot make-kpkg kernel_image modules_image
dpkg -i ../kernel-image...deb ../alsa-modules-...deb

I find this quite comfortable: I always know where to find old configs, have
a matching installed, can clean up old kernels and modules easily

What is this talk of software 'releases'? Klingons do not 'release'
software; our software ESCAPES, leaving a bloody trail of designers and
quality assurance people in its wake!
