Basically u need to have Celestial SoC & drivers related patch.
Then, u can download desired kernel or latest 3.3.x.

Apply and do the forward porting. It won't be straight forward, u need to
re-write a bit.
U can always refer any other celectial SoC family in latest kernel source
or other ARM9 family.

see -> arch/arm/
