Package: busybox
Version: 1:0.60.2-1
Severity: normal

 busybox cp -a breaks hard links.  It used to preserve them!  It also
 had one module that could perform the job of both "cp" and "mv".
 What happened to "cp_mv.c"?  It was codewise smaller than the current
 version, and preserved hard links.

 I realize that "(tar cf - .) | (cd dest && tar xf -)" will preserve
 hard links, and that ancient Unix "cp" did not necessarily do so...
 But both GNU and BSD "cp" do preserve hard links, so I would expect
 busybox "cp" to also do so.

Matt's patch has been merged upstream around six years ago, I'm therefore 
closing this bug for all versions.
