Maybe a better question might be...
Does anyone know of a low power micro-controller chip/board that supports Rasbian or some other familiar flavor of Linux?
It may be easier to bring Linux to low power hardware than to make a Raspberry Pi low power.
Now *that's* a necro....
As it happens, I do know of a class of device that will run for years on a fairly small battery. Unfortunately, it isn't cheap, I really don't think it will run Linux, and I doubt that you can just go out and buy one. It's a pacemaker. According to the manufacturer, the (not rechargeable, at least in situ) Lithium battery is good for 7 to 15 years.
