Second problem is size of kernel. Modern kernels dont fit in 2mb. Someone once made uboot for N8x0, maybe someone can do that.
I am not sure about 2m limitation. Kernel can be trimmed down, by moving things to modules. If that does not fit the requirements, perhaps kexec might be a proper solution.
As for patches for omap2, I think that 2.6.35 on ubuntu maverick has omap2 listed. I know this since I was playing with gentoo and beagleboard(omap3).
