You don't need to do this - you can build a kernel with a cross compiler.
It's far faster.
I don't have a reference document for this -- the only cross environment
I have is here:
but this is just enough of a cross toolchain to enable distcc on my x86
Also, there's no reason why you couldn't build the kernel & modules
on another compatible ARM Linux distribution first, then copy them
into your ARMedslack filesystem.
