while running 
BusyBox v1.30.1 (Debian 1:1.30.1-6+b3)

which has also devmem included, uImage is just at 6MB
with that included.

nod dev/null 0666 0 0 c 1 3

for some reason devtmpfs (which would be initially populated) does not
get automounted, and to avoid fiddling with these nodes as root, I use this

root is just bin/busybox + symlinks (including one from bin/busybox to /init

That is why I stumbled upon the led issue. Maybe I should check
whether gpio handling works, maybe something gets not driven correctly.
