If you want Linux, you probably also want something like an A9 or better. The M0 and even the M4's MCU's are not really targeted at Linux. Can you pack it into a big M4 - sure, it'll be a tight fit and you may not have everything you really wanted to have. Oddly enough some of the M4's have better native ethernet than some of their "big brothers". Weird….
