I've gotten my EL30 kernel tree up and figured I'd share. The initramfs is my EI22 initramfs from my CleanGB kernel, plus the updated modules from the stock EI30 kernel's initramfs. I made some tweaks to the initramfs so that it will (confirmed) properly root a stock system during boot. The only modification to the kernel tree is LOOSE_VERMAGIC module and the CleanGB bml config, which just has the custom version string in it, so it's pretty much just a stock + root kernel.

The LOOSE_VERMAGIC and and main build script are from Rodderik's EI22 tree.
The MTD build scripts (this kernel doesn't have MTD support ATM!) are based on nubecoder's.

UPDATE (2012-01-27):

I missed an important patch required for the back LED to work properly. Flashlight apps and the camera will not work properly without it. I've updated the kernel and created a separate branch just for it. I also removed some tweaks from init.rc and added the stock el30 initramfs for reference. The updated kernel and link to the new branch is below.

[1]I'm not 100% sure of this. If you flash this to an un-rooted stock EL30 system, please let me know if it successfully roots you.

cm7 kernel?!
