there's also plenty of shiny new kernels at this addresses:

deb http://kernel-archive.buildserver.net/debian-kernel/ trunk main
deb-src http://kernel-archive.buildserver.net/debian-kernel/ trunk main

In case you want to do quick tests. This is official Debian kernel repo,
but for testing only.

If you build from source and use the new kernel-package, do read the doc
carefully or you are in for surprises, the package has changed a great
deal. Personally I have reverted back to the old manual way of building
the kernel...
