I've tried compiling this on a base hardhat installation and here's the 
resuults so far.. (no, haven't gotten a kernel out of it yet)

First, there's no modutils.  I grabbed modutils2.1.121 and that compiled and 
installed fine.
Next, it almost immediately blew up on a lack of a current structure.
I found that /usr/include/asm/current.h had a conditional defining of the 
struct if C_language was defines, and something else if ASMing.  I just took 
out the conditional(don't know if it's the right thing, but compiling went 
alot further)
Lastly(and most messily) it got to arch mips and tried some ASMing.
Here's a short piece of that:
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 
-fomit-frame-pointer -G 0 -mno-abicalls -fno-pic -mcpu=r4600 -mips2 -pipe -c 
indyIRQ.S -o indyIRQ.o

How has everyone else faired in the compiling game?  :)
