Bug#552495: busybox-udeb: please enable dd conv=notrunc

Package: busybox-udeb
Version: 1:1.14.2-2
Severity: normal
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu karmic

I'd like to apply a patch to partman-basicfilesystems which reads the
UUID out of a swap partition before formatting it and then puts it back.
This is important because it's a lot faster to just create a new swap
partition from scratch than to check that it's valid, so d-i just
creates it from scratch every time; but this breaks any installation
that refers to its swap partition using a UUID.

The easiest way to do this appears to be using 'dd conv=notrunc', but
that's not enabled in busybox-udeb. Could you please set
