That is not recommended unless you are building a custom version of
a 2.6.32 kernel.  There are 2.6.35 stock kernel images available
in experimental.  For example: linux-image-2.6.35-rc6-686 or
linux-image-2.6.35-rc6-amd64.  If one of them will not do, you should
at least use the config file from one of those as your starting
point for configuration of your 2.6.35 source rather than using a
2.6.32 config file.  A Debian source package for 2.6.35 is also
available in experimental: linux-source-2.6.35.
