I don't have a Raspberry Pi so I'm not familiar with how they do things.

The main Linux kernel sources are available at kernel.org.  It's driven by a 
config file, and there is a curses based menu program to select the options 
you want.  You get there via make menuconfig.  There is also a make oldconfig 
that takes an old config file (copied from someplace) and asks what you want 
to do with the new options.

Each distribution usually has their own software collection which includes 
patches made to upstream packages they use that haven't been accepted by the 
upstream yet.  If you poke around the Raspberry Pi web site, you should be 
able to find the recipe for downloading, building, and installing their 
(probably modified) version of the kernel.  There is probably a mailing list 
to discuss things like that.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
