Yeah, i know, but i managed to get that one going, and if i remember well, the
2.4.27 patch applied fine on the debian kernel-source.

wrong :)

kernel-source-2.4.27 and kernel-patch-2.4.27-nubus should do the trick.

No idea, but i doubt it is meaningfull to go hunting after a the history of a
given binary kernel, it is more constructive to start from the existing source
