Well, you can give them kernel binary but they currently need to flash 
it themselves from linux. Advanced windows flasher would be useful for 
this. Anyone have time to find out parameters of that flasher.dll that 
comes with windows update wizard? The names of methods are promising

_Boot at 4
_DetectDevice at 8
_FlashBootFiles at 16
_FlashInitFilesystem at 8
_FlashKernel at 8
_FlashOperatingSystem at 8
_FlashRootFilesystem at 8
_GetLastErrorCode at 0
_GetLastErrorMessage at 8

Also the next OS version may make it easier. There won't be sandbox and 
root access will be easier so in theory it is possible to make such 
package. But messing with /dev/mtd2 (kernel partition) may be a bit 
dangerous from the device itself.
