I've never found a good solution for this. Red Hat tries by
having 'sub-versions' of the kernel (such as 2.2.14-1, 2.2.14-2).
You might try modifying the main Makefile and setting EXTRAVERSION
to -con1, -con2 etc. I don't know if that will be enough to make
it all work. It _might_ be enough for RH, but I don't know about
the other distributions.
This is the main reason why I don't use a modular kernel...
