I would not go with a precompiled kernel from debian (yet).
Instead, the only *really stable* kernel which I can recommend is a 3.9 based kernel with additional 2 patches.
See my newly created section "A stable kernel for a PARISC machine" at:
If you like, you may try my precompiled 3.9 kernel as described in the Wiki.
