I'll build one.  Is the customer using the 32-bit (i386) or 64-bit
(amd64) version of the OS?

Here are instructions for building a patched kernel on the same kind
of Debian system, from a directory containing the twelve patches
from [1] and nothing else:

	0. Prerequisites.  As root:

		apt-get install build-essential fakeroot
		apt-get install devscripts

	1. Get the source.

		apt-get source linux-2.6=2.6.32-45
		cd linux-2.6-2.6.32

	2. Patch and build.

		bash debian/bin/test-patches $(ls ../*.patch)

This should produce a .deb file containing the patched kernel.
As a sanity check:

	3. Install and test.  As root:

		dpkg -i ../<name of package>

These instructions were taken from [2].

Hope that helps,
