I think you are referring to the values in the config/alpha.cfg file.  I set 
the following values there:

KERNELVERSION = 3.10-3-alpha-generic

That is not the newest version, but it is the one that currently works on 
alphas.  The most current is 3.14-2.  I tried specifying that and got to 
essentially the same point.

This is a fresh di checkout.  It is current as far as I can tell.  Of course, 
alpha has had installer built for it for quite a while.
