uClibc does not enable the fork() symbol for non-mmu hosts (like uClinux) so
whoever said this was mistaken
further more, the current init code in busybox wouldnt work anyways if you
changed the fork() to vfork() due to the amount of changes the child makes
the uClinux guys use something simpleinit rather than init from busybox
