IMHO, most promising way should be using klibc-linked utils (including
its ash). Thomas Kunze works on that. I of course may imagine that will
require patching for real-world usability (timeout for 'read' for
example). But again, that should be more promising way than plucking
Current numbers for initramfs-bootmenu-image:
When bundled with the biggest linux-hh zImage (hx4700's due to pcmcia
builtin): just dozen Kbs less than 2Mb which is pure luck as that's
size of hx4700 kernel partition ;-).
Inside: ~850Kb busybox, ~300k - NFS kernel modules.
