Not yet, but I intend to.  A friend of mine runs Gentoo on his Linksys
Network Storage Link, but it has an USB interface so it doesn't have
storage limitations the way the WRT54GS has.

(My post was answering the question «can you get hardware for those
arches new?», not «and will Debian run on them»)

NFS root for the Debian system ought to work just fine.  (So using
both OpenWRT and Debian.)
