Re: DPT2044W SCSI adaptor with disk installed but no /dev/sd* devices created

I'm still trying to get to the source of the bug that prevents me from
using a DPT2044W SCSI card that uses the eata module, and have narrowed
down the working and non-working Debian kernel images to between
linux-image-2.6.22-3-686 version 2.6.22-6.lenny1 which works, and
linux-image-2.6.23-1-686 version 2.6.23-1 which fails.
There appear to be a large number of changes between the two and I am
unfamiliar with how to generate an intermediate kernel source with
Debian changes and config to build and test.
Thanks all for the comments on building kernel.org source under Debian.
What I'm seeing is that I could do a git clone of a kernel.org 2.6.24
tree (once I get adsl2+ up and running and buy an extra hard disk) and
build intermediate kernels (bisection), but surely there must be a way
of generating intermediate *Debian* kernels to narrow down the source of
the problem with running the DPT 2044W SCSI card under later kernels.
