It's fairly straightforward in principle.

Get and build the source, then try to make your new package compile
correctly with the uClibc tools and uClibc/kernel source from the Sisela
build tree. When it seems to work, copy your binaries to the appropriate
place in build/install, delete the old rootfs and rootfs.bz2, and run
make in the Sisela tree again to build a new image.

Build the modules against the Linux source in your Sisela tree, copy
them to build/modules and re-run the build as above.

Same goes for anyone else wanting drivers added - I'm also willing to do
special builds on request if people tell me what they want and it's
feasible :-)
