Linux in a keyboard, how small should we go?

There are an infinite number of uses for Linux on normal cpus and systems, but what about for very tiny systems, such as a USB keyboard? This talk goes through the attempt of the author to try to cram Linux into a 3 button keyboard with backlit LEDs. Whole subsystems will be removed, userspace might be ignored, and other pointless kernel changes will be made on a quest to find the smallest possible boot and runtime image that can be created to still have a working device.
