Hi guys:
        I think you guys are little confused. The Linux Kernel is dependent
on Gcc. May be you can consider,  kernel hackers made use of gcc extensions
and knowledge of code generation. Please google for  Linux kernel + gcc
depedendent etc
    Your ICE is not worried about which elf file you are downloading. You
can download linux or boot loader or what ever you want.  The only thing you
have to do is , read and understand the ICE manual.
