You are very likely the first to try that, and I'd be surprised if it
went smoothly.  IIRC, building kexts requires several non-typical
compiler/linker flags.  IMHO, CMake's strength is its cross-platform
nature.  A Mac OS X kext by its very nature is not portable, and I don't
quite 'get' why you'd want to use CMake.
