I was afraid the cross compiling would give me issues, but I just followed the directions on the RPi Kernel Compilation page.
I'm going to put this one hold until I get the problem on this thread solved.

If I can't get passed this stage, being able to mount a UFS volume won't matter.
Thanks for your help. I'll make sure to post here about successes and failures. Nothing is worst than helping someone and then not knowing if they ever got it to work or not.
