Custom run-time kernel modules

The reference pre-built Linux image that is supplied with the FM-COMMS-3 board seems not to have loadable kernel module support, and we are interested in connecting a UVC-compliant webcam to the ZedBoard to capture some video before transmitting it via a GnuRadio flowgraph.

 

Is it possible to cross-compile (or even if necessary, natively compile) a custom kernel module that can be loaded at run-time for the ZedBoard without having to rebuild the entire system? Or if not, is it possible to re-build only the kernel and load it into a running system without needing to recompile _everything else_, from FSBL and up...?
