Yep, this is the best option right now, but still needs loader and kernel.

There're instructions about that here, there are many steps mostly to
get loader+kernel, but it's relatively straightforward:


As Karsten explained, there are several cogs missing to be on par with
other ports in terms of bootloaders and Linux kernel, and also LLVM
and GDB and other stuff.

tl;dr: Upstreaming, upstreaming, upstreaming :)
