I suppose the answer is in this message:

It doesn't say much why the package is not in experimental while this
was the case in the past. It seems that this bug is recurrent so I
understand why you are scarce on details. There are several bugs about
this, like #573483 and its merged neighbors. So far, none of them seem
to tell why the package doesn't exist in experimental.

I tried to build it:

apt-get source linux-kbuild-3.14
cd linux-tools-3.14
uscan --report

debian/rules get-orig-source
(no such rule)

./debian/bin/genorig.py -V 3.15-1 ~/download/linux-3.15.1.tar.xz
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./debian/bin/genorig.py", line 202, in <module>
    Main(args, options.override_version)()
  File "./debian/bin/genorig.py", line 60, in __init__
    version = VersionLinux('%s-undef' % override_version)
  File "debian/lib/python/debian_linux/debian.py", line 148, in __init__
    raise RuntimeError(u"Invalid debian linux version")
RuntimeError: Invalid debian linux version
(removing this undef on line 60)

Untar the tarball, copy debian/ and modify debian/changelog to tell

One build failure about libudev missing, another one about usbip.h not
being here. I suppose I could dig a bit more but I am unsure of what to
do from here. I really don't know why usbip is the only stuff still in
drivers/ directory. I suppose this is on purpose since there is a patch
for that. I also suppose I could patch it to use kernel header instead
of uapi one.

It doesn't seem so easy to get such a package. While writing this email,
I noticed this was documented in this wiki page:

But no clue on the specific problem I get. So, not that easy.
printk("ufs_read_super: fucking Sun blows me\n");
	2.0.38 /usr/src/linux/fs/ufs/ufs_super.c
