Someone has a kernel. It can be found via Google. However I think it is a bit old and was compiled for x86. Old is okay, though signing a new one for an update would be new to me (Chromebooks are UEFI with locked bootloaders and while you can boot new kernels in Developer mode, there is a process, and I am quite the brand-newbie regarding this.)
I have never used debootstrap, nor rolled my own distro.
