difference between "pure" kernel source, and .deb packaged kernel source
 
At risk of sounding newbieish, what's the difference between the so called "pure" kernel source(from kernel.org) and the kernel source that can be obtained by the .deb package in the apt repository? Would anything need to be patched if I were to use kernel-package w/ the "pure" source?

Depends on what you want, Debian ships kernels with a handful of patches but nothing major that I can think of off the top of my head. If you want, you should be able to grab the kernel-source package for a particular version and see what patches are in there.
