In theory, yes.

The missing include from bootmem has been tricky to get through the "guards"
into marcelos kernel.
Config.in is my screwup I think..
Apart from that, the difficult thing with downloading the official kernel
releases are that if "they" make changes to the i386 port and architecture
API during the last minute before a release, the CRIS version of the patches
won't be included until after the real release. We're reasonably in sync
with the official kernel now though..
