Which seems to be kfreebsd-9 related, not busybox related.
This is very likely to be the same bug than the one fixed in kfreebsd-8
by 107_mount_update.diff. This patch has been disabled in kfreebsd-9
(probably because this part has been changed upstream), so this is where
to look first.
Uhm... ISTR it's me who removed that patch during the upgrade. In any
case, I re-checked, and it seems to me that the code that made iovec
arguments a requirement is no longer present.
Err, I don't see any iovec arguments in the 107_mount_update.diff
that google finds for me as [Glibc-bsd-commits] r3165.
I don't have time to look deeper right now though :-(
Until we are sure it's not a kfreebsd-9 bug, it's better to keep the bug
assigned to kfreebsd-9.
Since stock freebsd is documented as requiring -u ("update") when changing
the mount options of an already-mounted filesystem, it seems very likely
to be a kfreebsd bug.
