I saw in this blog post that you also would like an alternative
compiler able to compile linux. LLVM/Clang can compile a patched
kernel (https://events.linuxfoundation.org/slides/2011/lfcs/lfcs2011_llvm_lelbach.pdf).
A disadvantage is that it is a C++ program which still depends on
several GNU things (binutils, stdlibc++) on linux.

I recently saw that there was a "bounty" for being able to compile
Linux with PCC (http://bsdfund.org/bundle/), and this compiler already
can compile the FreeBSD kernel and most of the openBSD base system, I

tcc could compile linux back in the 2.4 days I think.
