My build of ramdisk-tiny.fs is currently exploding (1515520 bytes),
this could easily be due to a local change pulling in an unexpected
chunk of libc.

However the build does make it rather difficult to work out what
has happened.  In particular leaving an unstripped ramdiskbin
and making ld output a mapfile would make finding what has grown
or been unexpectedly included (and why) a lot easier.

This would be particulary true if something in the source tree
indicated which bits of libc are expected to be included.

I've also just noticed that 'objdump -h ramdiskbin' shows:
 12 .note         00002ef4  00000000  00000000  00115420  2**0
                  CONTENTS, READONLY
 13 .ident        00006d9f  00000000  00000000  00118314  2**0
                  CONTENTS, READONLY
I think these could be safely deleted (saving 40k).
