yes.  they basically borrow / forward-port (on an irregular basis)
device driver code.  combined with parts of libc6 (or uclibc),
"executables" can be built with a minimum of fuss that look pretty
much like standard c programs except that it's one entire static
binary.  imagine something like busybox combined with parts of the
linux kernel into a single static in-memory binary and that's pretty
much what it is.
