That's very easy.

Take a Freerunner. Put ASU on it. Just like it's discribed on the wiki 
and in the mailings lists. (so take the mwester opkg-config)
Have a "/etc/opkg/neo1973-feed.conf" still present in the config.
do a "opkg update && opkg upgrade"

now you have a neo1973 kernel installed with all it's modules.
(Opkg rather likes the neo then the freerunner kernel. Maybe it's 
compiled later in the auto buildhost?)
Go on and download a Freerunner-om2-kernel image and flash the freerunner.

Now you have it: a Freerunner kernel and Neo1973 modules. ....  And no, 
they don't fit......
.... and please don't ask why i know that.......


You always have a risk with flashing the kernel.
It's just growing now. But i think it's the right thing to do.
