Try getting the linux-source package from unstable instead.  It has
debian's patches and such.  You can also get the config file from one of
the newer kernels for your cpu as a start for oldconfig.  It's a big
jump from 2.6.8 to 2.6.15.  A lot has changed.

For that matter, you could probably see if there is a new linux-image
package already for your cpu in unstable.  Would be even simpler.
