How to make distribution package for linux kernel


I've modified linux kernel I've added few system calls and compiled the whole kernel and installed the new image and tested my system calls and it is working as expected....

Now I've to deploy this new kernel(from development machine) to production machine....
Kindly advise me how can I make distribution package (that should not contains source code of kernel) so that it can be deployed to some machine easily.

You can use the Makefile:

make rpm-pkg : create a RPM with a the bin and source code.
make binrpm-pkg : same but without the sources.
make deb-pkg : a debian package.
make tar-pkg : a tarball.
make bz-pkg : a bz file.
make bzip2 : a tar.bz2 file.

And use one of this to integrate in a distribution.

use make help to see the syntaxis.
