The DistroKit [0].

I currently have some i586 plattform here (because doing some
experiments with a project which has 32 bit support only and I don't
fight currently for x86_64 multilib support.) Nevertheless, it's not
mainline and x86 32 bit system is somewhat deprecated (in my opinion).

It's really simple to create a new plattform, if you are interest in
using the BSP in QEMU, then you can also use v7a plattform and the
run-nfs script will use a nfs userspace server, started by ptxdist

Also the created image can be put into beaglebone (white/black) or RPi2.
