Bug#654872: busybox dd should ignore SIGUSR1

Package: busybox
Version: 1:1.19.3-5
Severity: normal

dd from coreutils responds to SIGUSR1 by displaying its progress to the
terminal.  While I certainly understand the omission of this feature
from busybox dd for space, busybox dd currently has no handling for
SIGUSR1 at all, and thus when it receives SIGUSR1 it terminates.  Please
consider ignoring SIGUSR1 for compatibility with coreutils dd.
