I am compiling in the chroot, and everything I'm using in the chroot is from 
Debian sid armel.  So I am using a native compiler, and as far as I understand, 
it should work (like this: http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/docs/kerncomp.php).  The 
maemo kernel is armel, everything in the chroot is armel, and the target kernel 
is armel.  I hoped this would be simpler than cross-compiling.  Please 
enlighten me if I'm missing something (like maybe it can't be done in a chroot 
for some reason).  And thanks for your patience.
