I think the latest official Debian / Xen patched kernel is 2.6.26-15.
Patches exist for native kernel.org 2.6.27 and 2.6.29 kernels, however
I'm not sure if anyone is maintaining one for 2.6.28. I do remember
seeing patches for it, but now I can't seem to locate them.

I (or others) could guide you on obtaining and building 2.6.26-15 or one
of the later kernels, which one would be better?
