kernel-source are all you should need to build a module against it.

Yes, I understand that's a 11.2 modification. On the 11.0 kernel source package (I don't have installed the 11.2 dev tree) the README.SUSE file says that previous to "making" external modules, we have to do "make cloneconfig" - one of the possible methods:
