kernel-source-* are legacy packages imported from Debian. You DON'T want
linux-source-* are Linux sources as shipped by Ubuntu. Ubuntu has only
ever shipped 2.6 kernels, these ARE what you want.
The same aplies to 'linux-image-*'; this naming change has now been carried
over into Debian proper so the 'kernel-*' stuff is there mainly to support
migration and dist-upgrades from an already installed Debian machine.
Hopefully that'll get you sorted!
