I have grown attached to over the many years...

With x86 architecture I would either
apt-get install kernel-image
apt-get install kernel-source
where one has to find the full name of the desired kernel-image and
kernel-source on packages.debian.org or by grep-available or similar
methods. I guess that this is similar with other architectures.
Of course when you get kernel-source you'll have to compile and install
the kernel yourself. kernel-package can help here a lot.
In case you knew all that, what exactly do you mean by
`how do I get the new kernel?'?
