    Neat ;-) My goal is actually not only size, but also to have a relatively
    normal build environment, e.g. my example is with shared newlib, regular
    ash, and - unfortunately rather wasteful - glibc's ld.so.

    But a tftp loader in 20kB is rather good. Now the next challenge is the
    same thing with NFS. Then we can finally kill nfsroot ;-)
