My advice to you would be to stick with the Debian default kernel:
The only significant feature that isn't supported by it 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. ;)
 ...and that is in the mainline kernel.
