Bug#521483: busybox: no way to handle a syslogd pidfile

Package: busybox
Version: 1:1.10.2-2
Severity: normal

syslogd has no pidfile option.
also, busybox syslogd doubleforks, so we can't get the correct pid in an initscript.
i'd suggest adding a pidfile option (probably useful for other daemon functions, too).
