First, I want to thank to everyone who answered. In this mail, I
consolidate responses to multiple mails.

Yes. But it took me almost two weeks of trial+error by 24x7 compiling.
I was about to give up as I wrote my original mail. Finally, I've
found that the "apt-get source" method produces something that looks
like it might be what I'm trying to build (compile just finished, at
least the version number looks reasonable, I have not tried to install

I bet this is not by intent. IANAL, but I guess it could be a GPL
violation if it would be by intent.

I can't speak for Wolf Canis, but I always try to make sure that it is
not my fault before I go to file a bug.

For me, the reason is to activate low-latency-desktop. This is needed
to get a smooth video playback with vdr-sxfe. You just can't change
scheduler strategy by only compiling additional modules.
But before I go modifying anything, I want to make sure I can reproduce
a known stable state (the original ubuntu kernel in this case).

I am not exactly sure about that. The files I mentioned on the top of
this mail were produced by
apt-get source linux-source-2.6.22
AUTOBUILD=1 fakeroot debian/rules binary-debs
Looks pretty easy once you figured out the correct commands.
