Having forgotten some stuff for DMA, I just recompiled *again*, and I
will say with confidence that the way to recompile only those things
that have changed is:

rm -rf stamp-* debian/
make-kpkg ... 

and make-kpkg you can use whatever options you want, you can even
change the --append-to-version, the --revision, or even have patched
up to the next verison of the kernel.
