It is possible to compile this statically against uclibc with buildroot. If you use this to mount root filesystem over http, you may also need to patch uclibc's open_config function to never reopen /etc/hosts, /etc/resolv.conf, etc ... because reopening those on reconnection while the root filesystem is mounted will cause lock if those files are not yet cached by the kernel.
