I think that we should merge it. Better to get the new version into the new 
stable release, especially if the branching is not today or tomorrow :-(

That would help a lot at the next version bump. I have done most the busybox 
version bumps in the last few years (and the actual config refresh also this 
time), and even with that history it is still hard to remember the extra 
changes to be done manually. Better to document them in the main commit message.

I listed the needed edits in my earlier response, so Rosen might either edit 
the commit message, or maybe it is easier if Hauke just adds them (when you 
take the commits into your staging tree).
