Is it possible to use repl.it's C, port the linux kernel to it, and run it?

If so, could anyone post the link to where this has been done?
Thanks!

Why would you want to build + run Linux on repl (Repl already uses Ubuntu 18.04 try a bash repl should let you use most commands that repo uses (for languages))
it may work but it would probably shut down before it finished compiling

It would just be for fun, and so it wouldnt work ?

It could (also cool project) try it out (use a bash repl you still get c commands (and much more)) @AcceleratedCode
