When I upgrade my server kernels every few months I simply wget the
latest stable from kernel.org, unpack it, read the docs, run menuconfig
and select my options, then build it with the included Debian target:

$ make KDEB_PKGVERSION=custom.1.0 deb-pkg

I test it for a week or two on one system, if all is good I install it
on the others.  Most recent iteration was 3.2.6.
