Interesting discussion on the kernel list :) They did actually answer your question.
See 4.2 Rebuilding an official Debian kernel package That's the kernel-handbook and mentions the featureset option that you apparently need to find.

The linux source tarball should be exactly the kernel the patches are meant for. Also source of errors may be the source is not exactly the source they are meant for--that is, using Debian source when the vanilla source is needed, or visa-versa...and possibly you may need the original vanilla source, not a dot release. The first 2.6.33 kernel source tarball, for example, not the one.
