no downtime of lists.debian.org that i'm aware of (or any that was
announced on debian-infrastructure-announce).

no chance that the options you are looking for can be enabled with a

there are some information in the wiki or the manual about adding a
custom kernel when you're *not* using .debs. if you use debs, which you
really should (by either using the python foo that linux-2.6 packages
use, or by using kernel-package), then you can just drop them into local
packages (including the squashfs and aufs modules), and be done with it.
