Does whole thing actually work? Why do you think it is this patch
which causes the SIGSEGV? The change in this patch is quite, well,
innocent, it does not look like it can be a cause for any such issues.
Can you describe your initramfs/environment a bit? Maybe give me
access to your initramfs for testing?

Different of what, exactly? The version of busybox you're
filing bugreport against is actually 1.20.1, so there are
two questions actually: what is different, and different
between what and what? -- since you're comparing the same
thing with itself.

The only upstream change not included in debian package is
busybox-1.20.1-mke2fs.patch, which is only relevant for
busybox-static since other variants don't enable mkfs.

Now that's fantastic. Let's see.

So you reverted all fixes which went into 1.20.1 bugfix
release, you reverted my ps-get-uptime.patch but added
busybox-1.20.1-ps.patch (it has exactly the same content),
added busybox-1.20.1-mke2fs.patch (which is not relevant
for the issue in question), and reverted shell-ash-export-HOME.patch
which looks completely innocent here, without trying to
understand what it does and WHY it is here.
Wherer's the improvement? This is definitely NOT a way
to do things.
So, I really want to know more about your environment and
the segfault. I don't see any segfaults here.
