With a new-enough portage you can use the --keep-going switch to cause it to emerge everything it possibly can emerge which is not dependent on the failed package. If your system is new enough to support bootable CD/DVD/USB, I'd try to find a linux live CD which runs the same kernel version that you're hoping to switch to, and (assuming it works) look at its kernel config, dmesg, lspci -k, that sort of thing, and try to use it as a hint for configuring your own kernel on your hardware. You can chroot into gentoo from the liveCD and do all the kernel compilation stuff from there so it might be relatively painless.
