I might be wrong but I thought the atom CPU would add 64bit
support. As such the Debian amd64 port should work as well.

Then, for better optimization for low disk/memory systems, the emdebian
project would be the right place. Currently the project is quite arm
centered as most hardware uses that, esspecially those the devlopers
have. But mips is also a target and I'm personally interested in
supporting i386 for my VIA Eden gateway/fileserver and amd64 for
netboot rescue images.


PS: The best way to get it supported is to sponsor the hardware or to
talk someone else into sponsoring it.
