why ? afaik upstream omap tree is supporting n770 and n800 so it's
technically feasible. 
If it's a matter of resources, I'm sure you'll find people here that
will be happy to help you in this task. 
If it's a matter of userspace breakages, imho there should not be too
much. fwiw when running my custom 2.6.21-rc kernel, events like usb
cable plug and no wifi were the only breakages I've noticed.
