building kernel 2.6.24xxx, submitting patches...

I've got two questions which I could not find an answer to in the Wiki and cross-reading the forums, so here we go:
I'm trying to build a angstrom 2008.1 distribution for our OMAP Zoom 1 platform, which is based on an older stable kernel release from TI, 2.6.24-0.23.12. As I found out the kernel images are not bootable if compiled with the standard 4.3.1 toolchain, so there is an option to be set in the distr config file
to take the codesourcery toolchain 2007q3 for compiling the kernel. Unfortunately it seems that the toolchain downloaded and used then is a EABI toolchain and not a GNU/Linux toolchain, which in my case again breaks the build. Note that compiling a kernel with the GNU/Linux toolchain outside of the openembedded environment works great. Is there any way to tell the build environment to take the other type of toolchain for compiling?
Compiling the images I stumbled across some build errors (e.g. in libspiff). How do I correctly submit a patch to the OpenMoko community? Is it enough to fix the sources and to create a directory-diff against a virginal downloaded source package?
