Linux support

How to use TinyGo to create normal Linux executables.

TinyGo also lets you compile programs for Linux systems, both 32-bit and 64-bit, on both x86 and ARM architectures.

For cross compiling, you can use GOOS and GOARCH as usual. For example, you can cross compile the examples/serial example from a Linux host to a Raspberry Pi with the following command:

GOARCH=arm tinygo build -o serial examples/serial

This currently requires having the right cross compiler installed. On Debian you can do that with the following command:

sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf

This limitation should be lifted in a future version.
