What what about initramfs-tools adding the conflict? Changing ide.agent
is not an option, it has been hell to find something which works in 
bash/dash/busybox and anyway it will be obsoleted by 2.6.16 kernels.
The initramfs is built by initramfs-tools and I believe that it is its
duty to provide a non-broken shell.

Or maybe this should just be reassigned to busybox-cvs-static.
