I guess you can follow the guide on the sabayon wiki and just use 'vanilla-sources' instead of 'sabayon-sources'
This'll currently pull the latest rc of 2.6.23 and if you want to the stable .22 instead, then specify that when emerging, e.g.:
Code: Select all
emerge -av =sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.22.6

and maybe also mask higher versions, e.g with a line like this in /etc/portage/package.mask:
Code: Select all
>sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.22.6


Also I'd like to point you to some docs:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-kernel.xml
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/kernel-upgrade.xml

P.S. I hope you have a good reason for wanting vanilla sources...
