You should be able to extract the kernel log messages for the new
kernel version like this:

    { zcat /var/log/messages.{4,3,2}.gz ; cat /var/log/messages{.1,} ; } \
    | sed -n '/Debian 3\.2\.82-1/,/Debian 3\.2\.81-2/ { /kernel:/p }' \
    > kernel.log

However, it may be that any error messages were not logged to disk.
