The patch did not apply cleanly to current unstable busybox, but I was able 
to solve the one reject.

There seems to be just one issue with the patch: it also returns the process 
number of the 'pidof' process itself. I think it fails to check that the 
second argument is actually a subcommand rather than just a parameter.

# ps | grep [d]ebian-installer
  595 root      1300 S   /sbin/sh /sbin/debian-installer
# pidof -x debian-installer
2280 595
# pidof -x debian-installer
2281 595
