I've been running upstream kernels without any problems on Lenny.

The only issue I'm aware of is that the init script of nfs-kernel-server is
not compatible with 2.6.32.
The following change in /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server fixes this:
 		# See if our running kernel supports the NFS kernel server
-		if [ -f /proc/kallsyms ] && ! grep -qE 'init_nf(sd|    )' /proc/kallsyms; then
+		if ! [ -d /sys/module/nfsd ]; then
