The frontend/backend drivers should already be arch-independant.
I'm less sure for the interrupt (event) infrastructure.
Then there's all the mmu-related infrasctructure, but I think most of

I got a cubieboard, with the intention to work on this as time permit.
(but I also have other projects for arm too ...)
