Try adding 

ASSUME_PROVIDED += "virtual/kernel" or
ASSUME_PROVIDED += "linux-openmoko"

to your local.conf.

If it goes through (might not work because of missing module packages), you 
will have missing modules in your rootfs though.

(Nearby: A kernel build is quick... I would just let bitbake build it. You 
don't have to use it)
