Look under arch/mips/ramdisk (I think). This is where you should put the ramdisk.gz image and the compiler will pick it up and put it into the vmlinux image for you.

Embedded Ramdisk support in 2.6 is deprecated and removed from the tree for kernels >=2.6.10. You need to use initramfs now to get an embedded userland to work.
