So there you are after quite an odyssey ;). Often its easier to just use 
the standard package. I used to compile my own kernels for my older 
ThinkPads, but on the T520 the packaged 3.0 works so great, that I didn´t 
feel like compiling my own one, although it should compile pretty fast on 
that T520 with Intel SSD 320.

A good starting point for an own kernel is the config from the debian one 
and the package kernel-package. But that for sure it out of the scope of 
debian-laptop. Maybe sometime I subscribe to debian-user, but for now I am 
just on debian-user-german.
