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.
