No, with a kernel alone one can't do much. The tools also won't be a problem, when MWC
started to work on 3.0 the latest sources from 2.x were checked into RCS to start from.
But one also needs matching header files, a matching libc, don't know if these can be
reproduced. Also don't know if the C compiler is suitable or if one needs to revert it to
an older version. Probably it is possible to build a working 8086 COHERENT system,
but it requires real work, and without trying one won't know how far one can get with
the released sources. So still intriguing :)
