I haven't tried this, but the top-level Makefile includes this:
# Make variables (CC, etc...)
AS = $(CROSS_COMPILE)as
LD = $(CROSS_COMPILE)ld
CC = $(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc
CPP = $(CC) -E
I suspect that editing it to define CC to something else would be one way
to use a different compiler.
BTW, kernels compiled with gcc 3.x seem to work ok for me.
