Depends upon what you mean by compatible... ARM should support the
processor core (I'm not sure what the 922T has over the 920T processor),
but as for the devices attached to the core, there isn't any support
that I know about for the chip...
Adding support for the devices to make it really functional can be a
lot of work... but getting basic support functional isn't too difficult..

We are starting to integrate the arm toolchain patches into CVS head,
but until then, you can pull the patch out of perforce:
Feel free to ask more questions here.
