Debian works perfectly fine. The only problem is the debian kernel. I just
copied the raspbian kernel (+ modules/firmware) and all works fine.
I was going to test newer kernel and did compile one - but did not find the
time to test. So the only thing from raspbian you need is the kernel.

I am not sure about the hosts file. I actually used raspbian only to
debootstrap debian :)
