Theoretically we could have --enable-libata, --enable-devmapper and so
on to strip things down but do you think it's worth it?

I mean, for most embedded devices you typically want to handle all the
same things, for example the user could connect a USB hard disk
enclosure where the SATA disk is failing and the on-disk stuff contains
physical volumes that needs to be assembled using devmapper or RAID.
