The lwip stack looked more promising to me than the uIP stack. Specifically, the RTLinux port of the LWIP stack has some drivers (native and some ported from Etherboot). It would be great to see a writeup of someone's experience with it.
Also, have you looked at LZMA or UCL compressed kernels? Carl-Daniel Hailfinger mentioned on the OLPC-devel mailing list that he had a cleaned up LZMA patch that was converted to use the Linux kernel coding style. He is working on adding LZMA support to LinuxBIOS for use with OLPC. I tried the LZMA patch (not Carl-Daniel's) once, but I had other issues with the kernel I built that prevented it from booting. I always meant to try it again.
