It appears that enough binpkgs merged to provide a working portage environment
@Neddy should --usepkg --usepkgonly or neither be best now?

I was late with adding genkernel to emerge gentoo-sources suggest
Code:
emerge -1av genkernel

perhaps
Code:
emerge -1av busybox genkernel

if genkernel does not resolve a manual kernel

Be aware that genkernel builds its own versions of everything that goes in the initrd.
It does not take binaries from the system - it may not even use the same versions as the system

If ready for a manual kernel build:
recommend setup a Pappy's kernel seed as a base configuration http://kernel-seeds.org/working.html refers
Code:
eselect kernel list # 3.10.7 should be active
cd /usr/src/linux
make clean
make mrproper
wget -O /usr/src/linux/.config http://kernel-seeds.org/seeds/64_bit/gentoo/3.10.7-gentoo-x86_64-08.config
make menuconfig
you must adapt to your hardware

the useful tool
in menuconfig type /
a rudimentary dialog box appears
lspci -k has identified drivers that sysresccd uses that work
example: i7core_edac
enter i7core_edac in the search dialog

enter i7core
receive:

I have got our local Linux guru help me out here, but he used everything but Gentoo! Now BzImage was copied after unmount /boot
and mount /boot, which made the /boot rw.

Code:
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/.config


grub .conf needs menu entry for the new kernel resembling

title Gentoo Linux 3.7.10
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-3.7.10-gentoo root=/dev/sda2

assuming kernel-3.7.10-gentoo is the name you used

# CONFIG_SCHED_SMT is not set --- nehalem is hyperthreading according to googling, do you know that you don't want this?

we can set it and recompile the kernel, if that helps.
