It looks pretty good now, thanks!

Did you test with a minimal uClibc configuration, i.e no large file, no
IPv6, no C++, no wide char, no locales, to make sure that you don't
need to depend on specific toolchain options?

I don't remember if I asked you this question already or not. I might
at least suspect that the code may not build if IPv6 support is
disabled in the toolchain.

If you don't want to spend time building a minimal uClibc toolchain,
you can use the one at
as an external toolchain.
