Is kind of a beast to build the Debian kernel, took several hours.

I have built it for both i386 and amd64. The packages are here:

Test done:

   - Download, compiled and ran futextest [1].
   - Saved the output on a text file.
   - Upgraded the kernel related packages:
     2.6.32-5-vserver-amd64=2.6.32-48squeeze6 -> 2.6.32-5-vserver-amd64=2.6.32-48squeeze7
   - Reboot with the new kernel.
   - Ran futextest again.
   - Compared the output with the previous one:
     Nothing relevant. Everything passed. Only minor differences on the performance
     that are explained because of the different load on the machine at both moments.

Will be great if others can also do some tests with futextest or another thing.
