I would prefer to find a solution that doesn't require adding
$(DEFAULT_PACKAGES_BASIC) to the other default package lists. I'll have to
ponder over this a bit more. Posting the patch - possibly marked as [RFC] -
would make discussing this easier.

Meanwhile I've found another target-specific config setting in the busybox
package: BUSYBOX_DEFAULT_TRUNCATE is enabled for TARGET_bcm53xx only.

I assume "truncate" is tiny enough that it doesn't really justify making
busybox non-shared, we could just build in truncate unconditionally. I
don't know how contrained some of the "nas" targets are, but maybe we
should just replace the busybox hack with a full-featured hdparm on these
