I looked into that when Freescale gave us some CF devel boards to do a
CF port in 2005 or thereabouts. This work was never finished (due in
part to the glibc TLS support that only materialized about two years
ago), but I do believe it should be possible. However, there was some
significant opposition from some kernel developers, and I seemed to be
the only one with the opinion that it should be possible, so I don't
think there will be a hybrid port any time soon.
Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you
to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and
save on postage.
