I've an ARM SL3516 board with Linux 2.6.15 and I've tool-chain setup.
I could able to compile the GPL source. This board has red-boot.

I would like to update the kernel to 3.8.24. My first attempt so not
sure about anything I should know, gotchas etc.

Any advice about the compilation , config will be appreciated.

Redboot has option to upgrade kernel. So I guess I can use it once I
get the kernel image compiled.

I tried using the existing ".config" but not sure some SL3512
specific options would work?

Looking at the distribution, I don't see the "mach-sl2312" listed.
Can you just copy it from the old distribution and does it work this

There is this "mach-gemini" but it seems only for some W boards.

Thanks in advance
