You didn't state your size target.  One thing you could keep in
mind is that after a bit of tuning the BSD TCP/IP stack fits easily
into <100kB:

You could probably trim it down even further than what's cited in
the paper, as you might not want things like sockets in libsa (plus
our in-tree stack doesn't support dhcp in the kernel, but that
might be something you actually would want to have).

Writing your own would certainly be an educational experience.
But keep interoperability with the broken real world in mind.
