I can send you a binary image if that's what you're looking for
(although I'm definitely not the right person to offer this since I have
almost 0 knowledge about the O2). I'd recommend to start from the
sources which are available through linux-mips.org's cvs repository.
See:
 http://www.linux-mips.org/kernel.html 
and the patches for the O2 for 2.5 are here:
 http://www.linux-mips.org/~glaurung/
You'll also find a cross toolchain there. The major show stopper for me
is currently the "do_cpu invoked from kernel context!" problem which I
didn't find any time to look into yet. I wonder wether I'm the only
person seeing this?

Check out the excellent Linux O2 howto (but if you've done that for IP22
alreay this will be easy):
