I think you should start with upstreaming WTF and JavaScriptCore changes, including 
build system. There are people interested in using JSC on Android as standalone JavaScript
engine, I've CC'ed some of them. We have JSCOnly port intended for building JSC with
minimum dependencies, and it would be great if it had Android support.

As for upstreaming complete Android port, feasibility of that depends on how much full-time
developers are working on it, and on amount of Android-specific code. But of course you can
start from contributing fixes to port-independent code.
