The bad news is that there isn't a quickly and easily way to do it.
The kernel doesn't have an stable API (read
Documentation/stable_api_nonsense.txt) and the ARM part of the kernel
is one of the most fast changing lately. So probably most of the
drivers and SoC enablement platform code won't work with newer

So, this isn't a trivial task.
