 * Larger buffersize 3 June 1998 by Nicolai Langfeldt, based on a patch
 * by Peeter Joot.  This was also suggested by John Hudson.
 * 1999-02-22 Arkadiusz Mi¶kiewicz <misiek@misiek.eu.org>
 * - added Native Language Support
 *
 * from util-linux -- adapted for busybox by 
 * Erik Andersen <andersee@debian.org>. I ripped out Native Language 
 * Support, replaced getopt, added some gotos for redundant stuff.
