We will see what can be done, once the source code is released...

Comparing the Kernel with the Lion one in ida looks like Apple has made quite a lot of changes to the gear unit.

Most likely AMD ain't impossible - but it may require some serious rewrite of a patch.
People have been booting the x86_64 Kernel in Snow Leopard, but I haven't ever seen it up and running. Furthermore the current Lion patch contains a lot of obsolete code changes that last from Voodoo XNU and even earlier - it would deserve some update anyway...
But I don't think I'd be able to do such a job.

I am running Mountain Lion on MBP and Xeon Workstation - very satisfied so far...
