A different approach would be use one of the newer switches from Juniper and run right on the RE if you have those in your network

Does anyone make a SFP with a system on chip "computer" that you can run a
small embedded linux on?

I am sure it can be done because I have a "GPON stick" which is basically a
ONU with a small embedded Linux all on a SFP module. Does get fairly hot

My application is to run some small things that I feel is missing in my
switches/routers. Plug in this imaginary "SFP computer" to enhance the
switch with a small Linux. The SFP slot provides both networking and power
to the device.
