I don't think you need to do this, but of course it is a nice thing to
be able to do anyway.  You will know more about the OE side than me by
the sound of it, but I can give you the steps to build the kernel
standalone with the "moredrivers" config.

~ - git clone git:// linux-2.6
~ - git checkout origin/stable
~ - edit ./build to point to your compiler path
~ - cp defconfig-2.6.24 .config
~ - ./build

That gets you a uImage.bin you can DFU or copy into your SD Card filesystem.
