The M3 is very low end.  It is an ARM based microcontroller.  I believe
that particular one has 64KB of ram and 512KB of flash.  Not even uclinux
could run on that.

And since it is a Cortex-M it has no MMU, so uclinux would be the only
thing with a chance to run, but not in 64KB.

debian-arm runs on Cortex-A series, not Cortex-M.  The A series
is for applications devices running full OSs.  The M series is for
microcontroller jobs that are way smaller and more focused on a single
