embedded space interest kicked it back in.

also with devfs 2.0 you know longer need udev in your initramfs.
(which can be made to compile against it)
people patch all sort of boot tools against klibc, have seen dash,
mksh, kexec-tools, strange debian installer payloads..

it is in use in any Debian derivate per default and yes
we patch insmod in, but I'd prefer to have a m-i-t support
