Log message:
Update busybox to busybox 0.32 (released about 4 seconds ago).  Changes
include the following:

* usage() now prints the BusyBox version.  This will help folks
realize that they are not in Kansas anymore.
* Fixed mkdir -m option so that it works.
* kill segfaulted w/o any arguments.  Now it doesn't do that.
* kill wasn't properly accepting signal names.  It does now.
* Added new apps chvt and deallocvt (I should probably add open)
* Major rewrite of init.c.  Code is now readable by mere mortals IMHO.
* Wrote sed -- weighs only 1.8k (5.8k with full regular expressions!).
* Fixed a stupid seg-fault in sync
* Fixed mount -- mount -a failed to parse and apply mount options
* Fixed umount -n (patch thanks to Matthew Grant <grantma@anathoth.gen.nz>)
* umount -a no longer umounts /proc
* Added BB_MTAB, allowing (at the cost of ~1.5k and the need for a rw /etc)
folks to use a real /etc/mtab file instead of a symlink to /proc/mounts.
mount, and umount will add/remove entries and df will now use /etc/mtab
if BB_MTAB is defined.
* Fixed a nice bug in recursiveAction() which caused it to infinitely
hunt through /proc/../fd/* creating new file descriptors if it
followed the /dev/fd link over to /proc.  recursiveAction() now
lstat's the file when followLinks==FALSE so it won't follow links
as the name suggests.  Fix thanks to Matt Porter <porter@debian.org>.

Many thanks to Lineo for paying me to work on busybox.  If you have
any problems, patches, insults, or bribes please let me know ASAP at
andersen@lineo.com or andersee@debian.org.
