The definition of just how deep his feelings run is the very topic to be settled in the final volume, but it's long past the point where we can pitch this as Kirino's one-sided crush. If Kirino were to try to accept Manami's advice in a one-sided fashion, it would only make it more likely that Kyousuke would go after her. They'd have to arrive at a mutual understanding.
I think it's possible to assume Kyousuke has no feelings for her. Similar to Daisuke being an over-protective father, Kyousuke is simply an over-protective brother, he doesn't want to put a family member he cares about on the hands of a man he doesn't know. Remember when he said he doesn't want Manami having a boyfriend? He treats Manami as family too.

As of Volume 11, I haven't seen Kyousuke blatantly having feelings other than sibling-relationship to his sister.

Spoiler for A little comparison to other works:

Please do move these posts to the LN thread if you wish so.
