Bug Description

I want to make backports of armel cross compiler for lucid and maverick releases. To do that I need to have linux-source package available so PPA will be possible to use. But I can not provide other packages because I do not want to provide backports of toolchain components (especially libraries).

Attached patch adds SOURCE_ONLY variable which disables building of any full packages other then linux-source. I did not found a way to disable building of empty linux-doc, linux-headers, linux-tools-common packages.

For backports I would also have to lower build-dependencies but thats not part of this bug and can be done in other way.

Note that I dropped:

+ifndef SOURCE_ONLY
+ SOURCE_ONLY := true
+endif
+

in order to preserve the default behavior of the kernel build.

closing as invalid - as this was only needed for backport PPA I can handle patching on my own
