Which page? https://elektranox.org/n900/status/kernel.html only
specifies what's in mainline, right? I'd be ok using non-mainline
kernels, as long as they are provided in source code (as opposed to a
binary image (not allowed anyway) or only working with binary

A couple months ago someone said on the #maemo or #meego IRC channel
that he had a kernel in the making. So while it may not be possible to
use a kernel from Debian or one off kernel.org, it may still be
possible to run Debian with a self-compiled kernel (maybe sound won't
work or in the case of N900 the GSM, though), it seems?
