    You really don't have to download a different source. All kernels are build from the same source code.
    All you have to do is downloading The Kernel Source (from http://www.kernel.org/), and select that processor type when you configure it.

    I don't remember seeing that cpu in the menu but you could try one of the other kernels like the alan cox versions. There also might be some gcc optimizations you can use for when compiling the kernel.
