Bug#588324: busybox: Please include cttyhack and setsid to enable ^C in initramfs shell

Package: busybox
Version: 1:1.15.3-1
Severity: wishlist

Because current debian build of busybox (and busybox-static) does not
include 'cttyhack' and 'setsid', it is impossible to use ^C and other
job control feature in initramfs shell.

- http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2008-January/029936.html

As you can see in above URL, enabling CONFIG_SETSID and CONFIG_CTTYHACK
would be a big plus, as then you can interrupt command in case it doesn't
return (like "ipconfig -c dhcp" or "ping"). Being forced to reboot just
because of one "inappropriate" command is not a very happy option.
