I'm trying to fit this all onto a bootable floppy. I know I know, people
have already told me floppies are on the way out -- I don't care. It
would still apply to something like a ~2MB flash.

My tentative plan is to build it all against uclibc using -Os, which
should save some space.

Suggestions would be welcome.
