kernel selection for embedded devices is an art in itself, please ask on
the respective porter list for help, e.g. email@example.com
for ARM based devices, or on firstname.lastname@example.org.

basically you can do stuff in two areas:
* optimize for install size: rebuild packages, use already rebuild
packages (like emdebian) or trim packages yourself (with chroot
hooks) to get rid of unecessary components (such as documentation,
l10n, additional binaries, etc.).
* optimize for runtime speed: rebuild packages without support for
things you don't need (i18n, gtk, $whatever), with different
compiler options, etc.
both of which are a huge tasks and not a topic here, please refer to
email@example.com for help with embedded systems.
once you have a proper repository of modified packages ready, we'll be
here to help you use live-build with it, should you need any.
