Thanks for any ideas!
Best bet would be to just use the Ubuntu kernel sources, and change your config from there IMHO.
The issue is that Ubuntu heavily patches their kernel source and to do the equivalent would require a lot of manual edits on your part (creating and modifying makefiles, grabbing all the sources, etc...)

If you'd rather not use the Ubuntu kernel sources to roll your own custom kernel, you could 1)patch the kernel with any desired upstream patches and 2) compile required modules without their own patches outside of the kernel tree (much easier than incorporation).

Anyone have any other thoughts on the issue?
