glibc in stretch requires kernel 3.2, systemd kernel 3.13.  Most kernels you
get on vendor images are 3.4, 3.8 or 3.10 -- all of them good for stretch in
general but not for systemd; other packages with kernel requirements are
extremely rare and unlikely to be involved.

I'd first try without systemd; even kernel version aside, other init/rc
combinations are more likely to work even when a required kernel option is
missing or some other minor error happens.

If you do require systemd for some reason, you'd need to go back to jessie;
the pdf with instructions says jessie works with WXL.

Jessie is also needed in case the vendor kernel is 3.0 (jessie's glibc needs
2.6.32, no idea about systemd).
