My advice to you would be to stick with the Debian default kernel:

The only significant feature that isn't supported by it[1] is the IBM
ACPI extras, which you can live without, and it does come with
everything compiled as modules nicely.

Once you *know* why you need a custom kernel, build one.  Change for the
sake of change is seldom /forward/ progress. ;)
