I works, but it has limited functionality, most noticeably it will not
let you load programs into flash, and OpenOCD seems to work just as well
once you get it going. (But the JLink command tool that also comes with
the free Segger tools is invaluable if you ever screw up the security
bytes on the flash; it has a handy command to fix those.)

There are a couple issues I run into with OpenOCD:

1. if you are using a newer version of gdb, there is a mismatch between
the number of registers OpenOCD reports and gdb expects, and gdb will
just exit with an error. Building OpenOCD from source something like
this with fix it
But I decided to patch gdb instead to just warn rather then error.

2. JLink has to be started at 100kHz for the initial handshake between
the server and gdb, and only then can be speeded up. The Segger server
seems to do this automatically, with OpenOCD you have to tweak the
config file to achieve the same. (I have attached my cfg file, in case
it is of any use).
