How much memory does the device have available (both RAM and FLASH)?

Note that C code can't be really used to implement the semantics of IL
code, unless you plan to use only a limited subset of IL (the use is
also indirect, through the mscorlib implementation).
It is likely better to implement AOT support for your embedded device
in mono and use that.
