Upgrade a specific Linux Kernel Subsystem?

Is it possible to upgrade only a specific sub-system, say I2C, of the Linux Kernel.

For example: Is it possible to include "Support for multiplexed I2C bus topologies (introduced in Kernel 2.6.36)" in the Kernel version

The modules are probably already compiled in. To verify, in a terminal, run " locate -i *i2c*.ko " (without quotes).
