This is a "lack of documentation" issue rather than any physical or
practical impossibility. I have no experience of such action, but it
should not be hard, all the different "bits" are well documented -
building debian kernel + initramfs, integrating the non-free ixp4xx
driver module, proper header for redboot, flashing to nslu2. Just
combining this to one step-by-step document is missing.
