This is not a good idea if you are re-compiling the same kernel that ships
with your distribution. If you don't get the modules compiled right, you
may have trouble booting the old kernel again.
Instead, edit /usr/src/linux/Makefile and change EXTRAVERSION to
something like "-kh1" or "-local" or "-test". That way the
modules will go into /lib/modules/x.y.zz-test/ and will be
kept separate from your distribution's modules.
Remember, safety first...
