I guess we won't be able to avoid recompiling stuff, see below:

+ mount proc /proc -t proc
Segmentation fault

The busybox mount is segfaulting for some reason. This doesn't happen with
the normal mount and the same kernel.

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows, 
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
