How about
?  It kind of rolls off the tongue.  Lots shorter than EmbeddedUbuntu.
Plus, it has zero hits.

(microubuntu is taken already, in a very minimal way: somebody
proposed it as the least common denominator between ubuntu, kubuntu,
and xubuntu.
It doesn't imply non-mainline-processor in the way emb*ubuntu does, anyway.)

We'd better make sure it doesn't mean "enough used motor oil for everybody" in
swahili first, though...
