Would you like to try building your own debian kernel package?
Its pretty easy:

- apt-get install kernel-package
- extract the linux 2.6.12 sources in /usr/src (for example)
- apply the patches you would like to include
- copy /boot/config-2.6.8 to /usr/src/linux-2.6.12/.config
- 'cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.12 && make menuconfig' and add the
  options you would like to have
- make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --revision 1 --initrd buildpackage

Good luck
