What makes you think the kernel is to blame for the rom not booting?It could be system related too,especially if you are trying to boot a rom build for a different device.
When you do a port there are 3 basic things, the miui base,your device proprietary stuff and the kernel.
Don't forget that we have a Nexus device so we have the sources from Aosp so no need for CM11 (miui v5 is aosp based too).
Some people use Patchrom to port Miui,others just do it manually, using the miui base and then injecting the device's proprietary stuff (you need to work on the frameworks a lot).Doing this also requires good knowledge of ADB, some smali editing and more.
My suggestion is to open a new thread for this port so if someone is interested can jump in and help but from my experience i wouldn't hold my breath on fully working builds very soon (just have a look how all the porting projects ended up on N5).
Anyway good luck to anyone who tries to port it.

Oh sorry i quoted the wrong user, i don't only blame the kernel but i only wanted to suggest to compare them so he might also get an better view of the kernel itself. Yes i know we have aosp but i thought miui might wasusing caf and the porter used cyanogenmod as port

Anyone got this working on the mi3? Installed it but it's asking for a validation.

There are a lot of guides on how to port MIUI but it will require a lot of work,not just some file replacing and having the rom booting will be just the first step.
If i were you i wouldn't post a build in here until i'm sure is booting and no harm can be done to the device (many people will flash anything you throw at them).

I mounted system, boot, and data.img from the leak and took the latest CM11 nightly and used this script as a guideline to see where everything should go. I thought MIUI was based on CM? The updater script I used is just the same one from the other "MIUI v6" Nexus 7 port so I didn't just pull it from CM11.

Play can you try using the same script on a vanilla 4.4.4 rom? probably it should work better
