Want to take a bet ? ^^
Use a stock linux kernel with same version and compare it with the one from Asus, and you'll find some changes (I'm obviously not talking about specific drivers from Asus devices), specially in the arch folder.
Then You could take out the Archos specific drivers from Archos source code and meld them with Asus source code, change the config file in the arch folder and you'll get a functional kernel. For a non android system, you may not even have to modify the config file (in the arch folder) except creating a new one with a make menuconfig... ^^
For the rest, you're right, without HC source code it's useless but it could be used with Gingerbread or CM7...
