I have merged the latest commits into my "osports" branch, and I would
be grateful if you could consider including my changes in the official
BusyBox when you find the time.

I expect the easiest way to do this would be for you to merge the
branch directly when you are satisfied with its state, but I would be
happy to provide you with a rebased branch or patches if you find it
more convenient or appropriate.

The "osports"  branch is here:
git:// The interesting
commits are c88c1a0..e7826c1.

Please let me know what I can improve,
