MMU: n/a - this means you have to turn Linux into something like msdos,
which I would consider cheating, or you write a CPU simulator, adding
another 2 orders of magnitude to your performance hit.
I believe someone managed something like this a while back with the
equivalent of an Arduino mega.

Oops, kernel source alone is 500MB+. Does this contraption have to compile
its own Linux for the challenge to be valid...?
Here's another challenge: make it work with fewer bugs on a normal PC...
Lower sex factor, but beneficial to a hugely larger user base. ;-)))
