I have a branch in [1] that tries to disable as much as possible in
order to make tests/minimal smaller. Most of it won't be of much use as
you're using gnrc, but maybe you find some inspiration.

Some ideas:

- reduce the number of allowed threads and priority levels to exactly
what you need
- disable all stdio (see also [2])
- compile with LTO=1
