Well, Stourstrup himself said that there's not a single favored way to use C++, and that not using every feature is not a crime or characterized incompetence.

In my case (kernel development), I currently use it as a very nice superset of C with classes and (very important) function and operator overloading. I also use references from time to time. That's it.

In that case, the sole runtime requirement is to run the constructors before the kernel. Not a big deal, the assembly snippet required in order to do that is only a few lines long.
