I think this was already mentioned, but since the search generated too
many results, only the first 100 were given. If you set the suite to
sid then you might find what you are looking for.

3.18 was only ever in experimental, so you need to replace sid with
experimental in your sources line.

If you want something which gets updated and gets bug fixes, you
shouldn't be using snapshot.d.o and instead use a kernel from the main
archive. Install "linux-image-amd64" to get the latest one from sid.
