No need to find such a kernel, you can do what I did which was to grab 1.0.24 from the alsa site and:

that gives me a stable debian kernel with alsa on the wild side. My impression is the kernel audio sources are simply a wholesale copy of whatever alsa release is current when they freeze a particular version so it's not too crazy to rip out the old drivers and replace with new ones.
To remove the old drivers I did something like:
zip -m oldSnd $(find $(uname -r) -name 'snd-*.ko')
so you can easily put things back if it doesn't work out.
