But you can just cross-compile a kernel yourself. It's very easy, really.

You can just install the m68k cross-toolchain in Debian testing/unstable,
then download the kernel sources or ask Finn to provide you with the
sources he has and then build the kernel with CONFIG_FHANDLE.

It really involves a few commands only. You just have to start doing
it, it's not really magic.

The following should be enough on Debian testing/unstable:

# apt install gcc-m68k-linux-gnu libncurses5-dev
# apt build-dep linux
# cd /folder/of/kernel/sources
# ARCH=m68k make menuconfig
(Configure the kernel here)
# ARCH=m68k make

And your kernel will end up in arch/m68k/boot, that's it :).

Yes, with Pengiun

I remember I had to fiddle around a bit to get it booting, but
since the machine is currently in my basement, I'm afraid, I can't
have a quick look. But I think I had the same issue, try searching
the mailing list archives of this list.
