Being rpm ignorant I do not know what the expected content of a kernel-source RPM
are but this is the available targets for kernel packaging (from make help):
rpm-pkg - Build the kernel as an RPM package
binrpm-pkg - Build an rpm package containing the compiled kernel
deb-pkg - Build the kernel as an deb package
tar-pkg - Build the kernel as an uncompressed tarball
targz-pkg - Build the kernel as a gzip compressed tarball
tarbz2-pkg - Build the kernel as a bzip2 compressed tarball
I just tried binrpm-pkg - but alas I have no rpm installed it failed.
