I'm not sure I understand the question exactly. You wouldn't make a Debian kernel into a generic vanilla kernel, you would just get the vanilla sources and build with that. If you are looking to get some patched functionality in the Linux kernel under a different distribution (like Slackware), then you would apply the specific patches to the vanilla kernel and build it on that system (this will be easy on Slackware, since it has an unmodified kernel).
In other words, you can't have both a Debian-specific kernel and a generic kernel at the same time, they are two different things.
