I would be happy to send you a 2.6.10 kernel tree with speakup patches 
as well as other patches that I use on my system. Most of them come 
from the gentoo-dev-sources package from Gentoo Linux, but there are 
a couple that I have applied by hand like grsecurity. Let me know if 
you're interested.

I am running Slackware 10.0 with the Speakup enabled 2.4.26 kernel compiled by Joseph C. Lininger. Currently, there is no software synth support in the kernel, so I figured that if I'm going to recompile the kernel, I might as well upgrade to 2.6.7 for the sake of being up-to-date.

Consequently, I've decided to download the 2.6.7 kernel source package from a Slackware 10.0 mirror along with the Speakup-2.4.26 folder from the sources directory. Will I still be able to patch the 2.6.7 kernel with the Speakup source, or will there be something else I need to do?
