there is no simple answer to that. /Maybe/ the build system could be
simplified a bit, but in the end the src:linux needs to build a lot of complex
stuff, needs to be generic/modular etc.

If you really want a simple way to rebuild one kernel, maybe you can just look
at make bindeb-pkg target of the upstream kernel Makefile?

I don't really think it makes sense for an end-user to maintain a local fork
of src:linux.
