Install the kernel sources and debian patches with apt-get or aptitude and apply the debian patches and the XEN feature patch. And all the patches you need.
Commands to configure and compile the kernel:

cd /usr/src
tar xvjf linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2

cd linux-source-2.6.32
../kernel-patches/all/2.6.32/apply/debian -f xen -a x86_64
patch -p1 < /root/your-special.patch
cp /boot/config-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 .config
make-kpkg --config menuconfig
make-kpkg --revision 1.0 --append_to_version -my-own-xen-amd64 --bzImage --arch-in-name --initrd kernel_image -j 4

After compilation is complete, install the .deb with dpkg -i.

Hi there.

For First i just wanted to say hello to all mega minds XEN experts:).
I have a little problem with XEN kernel. I have cloud computing and in this architecture we use XEN wirtualization.I wanted to have a custom debian based kernel witch fallowing modules   tun imq ipv6 qos ipip iptables (full). Its there a way to download a Kernel patched XEN on debian and then make the coustom one? Or i have to make a normal one and then patch it? Sorry for maybe noob question but i know that here are experts who could help me. Thanks in advance.

Thank all the kind users  for help but hmm its could be difficult to engage the whole operation. It's there a way to patch a kernel in deb package? The best thing its to get current version form my distribution and customize it, but how the Christian sa'ys apply the "debian patches" but i don't see them in repository. On official Xen site i saw the third way to customize kernel by editing the .config file and add some extra options.
