FYI, Grip is not really embedded, targets MIDs, netbooks and devices
with few hundreds of MB storage.
Crush is more embedded, but actually with lack of support until
multiarch bits are in place.

Emdebian does provide a rootfs for integrators, so anyone can pickup a
bootloader, kernel, emulation software (if needed) and integrate them
all together.

Alexander Shiskin showed me emdebian (or maybe was slind.org, a proof
of concept of crush among other things) running on a Nokia 770 device
four or five years ago. If I recall correctly, he needed non-free code
in order to use DSP. But, yes, it does not work out-of-the-box.
