My bluetooth dongle drivers were in kernel 2.6.38. Since then it never worked with any new kernel. So my only way to use it is to boot into old kernels. But I want to update kernel to 3.1 with new drivers except Bluetooth. Can patching do this?

Sounds like a regression. File a bug report on Launchpad. – Anonymous Nov 26 '11 at 13:38

open synaptic package manager, select the package you want to preserve, then from the "package" heading in the top menu check "lock version".
