You don't have to. It's already done. You can build an arm version of any kernel. My mobile phone runs an arm7 on a 2.6.34.5-cyanogenmod kernel.

Look, you are still able to build a kernel for the '386. I am sure you are able to build one for the arm7. If not, you might like to ask on android forums. They do arm kernels all the time. Why bother farting about when you can download a complete OS like Android, cyanogenmod, or any of the other flavours
