The merged tree is here:

I don't know the plans for when the final merge will happen.

A standalone version of klibc is also available here:
Looks like version 1.3 is the latest

The standalone version is perfectly fine for development. You only
need to worry about the kernel tree version when it everything is
finished. I've used klibc for several apps like this and it is a great
tool. The binaries it produces are tiny.

vbetool is a good way to practice resetting the cards if you do the
mods to /sys/class/firmware. The other features like emu86 support can
be added later.
