That is better approach.
u can try compat-wireless. It supports wide range of kernel version. What wifi are u using, ralink or others? Each wifi has source, u can compile against ur kernel to build module. U need to enable wireless support in ur kernel.
Sorry for late reply, but thank you.
I also searched for many things on the net, read a lot of documentation, but it seems almost impossible thing to do... (That is shame, where is the power of linux? :) Just kidding )
Is there any way to do backporting ? For example, adding CIFS or USB WIFI support to my current kernel?
If so, what are the steps for it?

I already know how to find the changes, please see my 1st e-mail below.
The problem is, those changes are more than thousands of lines of code, and
hundreds of files are added or modified.
I wonder, how can I apply those thousands of changes to new kernel source
quickly and easily?
The bad news is that there isn't a quickly and easily way to do it.
The kernel doesn't have an stable API (read
Documentation/stable_api_nonsense.txt) and the ARM part of the kernel
is one of the most fast changing lately. So probably most of the
drivers and SoC enablement platform code won't work with newer
So, this isn't a trivial task.
