At this point it would be easiest to bisect your kernel.  To do that, check out
a git tree and then start bisecting.  With bisect, you tell git the a known
good and known bad commits, and then it check out a commit halfway between the
two specified.  you compile and test that commit and then tell it if it was
good or bad ('git bisect good' or 'git bisect bad') and it will continue to
bisect until the problematic commit is found.  See:

# clone the git tree
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
# change to the newly checked out tree
cd linux-2.6
# start bisecting
git bisect start
# specify the bad commit
git bisect bad v2.6.38
# specify the good commit
git bisect good v2.6.37
# ...built/test
# if the commit is good
git bisect good
#if it's bad
git bisect bad
# if there is another problem (won't build/won't boot, etc.
git bisect skip
# at the end git will point you to the problematic commit.
# to reset your git tree after you are done
git bisect reset
