    I demand that Larry Finger may or may not have written...

    Pull the other one.
    That works on Debian too, given suitable sudo configuration; but there's
    always "su -". (I prefer "fakeroot make-kpkg kernel-image"; I get a .deb to
    install.)
    You'd have to check the changelog for that, since they'll have 2.6.25-N with
    a changelog entry which says something like "Update to 2.6.25.2.".
    (/usr/share/doc/kernel-image-2.6.25-*/changelog.Debian.gz)

    BTW, how do you know what fixes will be in 2.6.25.2? ;-)

    I'm prescient, and I'm part of the bcm43xx developer group. The
    patches in question have already been submitted to -stable. They will
    likely be in 2.6.25.1, but certainly be in .2.

    Nah!

    The bog standard Linus kernel has "make deb-pkg". You install the
    resulting .deb package, then run

    # update-initramfs -c -k 2.6.whatever
    # update-grub

    The proper Debian kernels do that for you, but there's nothing stopping
    you doing it yourself.

    I'm currently running a post-2.6.25 git pull. It fixes a lot of
    wireless driver problems.
