I want to go here https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux and see how the kernel is packaged. Specifically I think there may be an old debian patch still in there that is affecting my hardware.

e.g. https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libevent shows the branches for the various releases and I can choose a branch and browse files.

How can I do this for the Linux Kernel?

If you go here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ you will find ALL the kernels currently used. Select the one in question. You will find the "build.log" and the "changes" there.

follow up question is how do I map my ubuntu kernel version to the linux kernel version there? 3.5.0-19-generic there is no 3.5.0 at the link you posted. –  Jay _silly_evarlast_ Wren Dec 20 '12 at 18:03
