Right. So,

First I compiled a 2.6.31 kernel as described here
with the sources of the olpc-2.6 git (on Jan18, 2010) and patched it with the Aufs2 with patch and sources from aufs2-standalone git tree 
( http://aufs.sourceforge.net/README.aufs2 ). Patches just fine w/o any modification.
I do not think Aufs2 is needed for tiny core. Was/is for puppy linux and I had it running ;-). 

Then I build the kernel with the config posted here 

Then I installed this kernel on the XO-1 running F11-XO1/os11 and through trial and error (I do not really comprehend bash operators ;-) I modified your script to the one attached.
Build tinycore_xo  running the script with the --xo-1 option
Note that this script has an essid defined and the name of the kernel I had running on my XO-1. So is not generally applicable.

Finally run the build on the XO-1 and added Xbfdev as described here

Then you go to the original post :-)

Is really low-tech but that's how was done!
