Hi, I can answer to the question 1 :
I use buildroot for an arm processoir based board, and I build the
kernel separately. I work with a 2.6.27 kernel, I use buildroot release
2010.02, and everything works well. Before I was using release 2009-02,
but I changed to 2010.02 for the same reason, compilation problems after
make clean ;)
So I alway use my 2.6.27 kernel, I just changed its configuration to use
EABI because buildroot release 2010.02 use EABI by default.
