Not practically. None of the kernel mode headers have been translated (though the libs are provided), and you can't use anything that requires the fb runtime. That includes basic things like simply declaring (much less actually using) string variables. Even then, with -nodeflibs, you'd need a different piece of startup code since the provided one is for user mode.

So technically possible, but plenty of large hoops to jump through to get there.
