comment What is known about the largest prime divisor of the product of $k$ consecutive integers?
You might be interested in a paper of Filip Najman at arxiv.org/abs/1108.3710 . The largest prime divisor of the product n+1 to n +f(k) is looked at and shown to be larger than k when n is larger than k. f(k) is pretty small and conjectured to be O(log(k)^2). So you don't need as many as k consecutive integers. Gerhard "Sees This As Smooth Intervals" Paseman, 2015.11.02

Here is another idea which may get $k$ down to around $(b\log b)/m$. Start by picking $k = \lceil b/m \rceil$ and create a graphical fragment using $k$ columns. Hook up as many of these as you can to reduce the maximal number of unconnected edges at any vertex. Now double the fragment and hook up remaining edges between fragments. Iterate the doubling process until done. This may end up terminating quickly. Gerhard "Leaves The Analysis To You" Paseman, 2015.10.30.

Another obvious observation is that $km \gt b$. This really hinges on the maximal degree. It may be worth expressing $k$ as a function of $b/m$. Gerhard "Happy All Hallows Eve Eve" Paseman, 2015.10.30

comment Recognize this countably generated abelian group?
Uh, if $q=1$, the group is no longer infinitely generated. I think the condition $1 \lt q \lt p$ shows where the interesting part is. I do like that your answer does cover the case $q=1$. Gerhard "For My Idea Of Interesting" Paseman, 2015.10.30

Is $X$ the set of degree values? If so, and if $b$ is the largest value of $X$, then in general $k \leq b$ (need $b+1$ when $M$ is a singleton). Gerhard "Will Add More With Confirmation" Paseman, 2015.10.30

I did, and it got reverted to Jamseon Thanks for the catch. Gerhard "Still Have Seoul Inside Me" Paseman, 2015.10.23
