This is not the right kernel. I lost my partition and I will have to
reproduce the steps on my machine before I can provide the details.  
To give you and idea, you have to copy what is being done for targets
like ADI_BRH. Take a look at files like
and /usr/src/sys/arch/evbarm/conf/ADI_BRH_INSTALL and do the same for
NSLU2. Just grep for ADI_BRH. 

I would start by doing a build release and looking at what files are
generated for ADI_BRH. Then try and make the slug look the same. My
kernel refused to work (couldn't find the filesystem) until I enabled:
options        FFS_EI          # FFS Endian Independant support
