Testing isn't required to be buildable from itself. Packages are usually
built from unstable, and migrate to testing eventually when the binary
package has all its dependencies met.

Download kernel-source-2.4.27 from the archive, e.g. via
wget http://ftp.debian.org/pool/main/k/kernel-source-2.4.27/kernel-source-2.4.27_2.4.27-7_all.deb
and install it with dpkg -i.

Btw, kernel-patch-2.4.27-mips will try to build all kernels supported
for mipsel, you may want to comment out all other subarchitectures
besides cobalt in debian/rules (in the subarches := ... line).
