That's what I do on my servers, on Debian. Using SSH, I build the kernel using fakeroot, being member of the src group, and then I install it as root (still by SSH).
There is no way around, you have to be root to install a kernel, or kernel modules (as far as I know).
Or you could gain root privileges with sudo. As root. with "visudo" you could set it so you just have permission to install kernel and kernel modules, nothing else. Still you have to be root to set that up. At one point or another, root is involved."To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday.
