easiest ist probably to clone linus git:
git clone git://git.eu.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git

then have a look at the bisect manpage
git help bisect

git bisect start
git bisect bad v2.6.30
git bisect good v2.6.29

on the later step git should tell you or similar (running Lenny git here)
Bisecting: 6508 revisions left to test after this
[3c6fae67d026d57f64eb3da9c0d0e76983e39ae3] Merge branch 'hwmon-for-linus' of git://jdelvare.pck.nerim.net/jdelvare-2.6
cp /boot/config-2.6.30-1-amd64 .config
make oldconfig

this will produce the deb you can easily install
fakeroot make deb-pkg -j <nr_of_processors>

ah and you don't need to compile on the box itself,
if you have another faster at the hand.
hope aboves helps, don't hesitate to follow-up.
