The config file that was used in creating a debian kernel-image is available
for review in /boot . Looking at it should give you a definitive answer as
to what was compiled. If the stuff you want was compiled as a module, you
may have to force load the module. If the option you need is not invoked in
the config file, you will have to re-compile.

The above is a generic answer which may apply to your situation. HTH.
