there are 2 more issues, the -i parameter for busybox mke2fs seems due 
to a bug only work in the first position, and the -j parameter for 
tune2fs is not supported. btw, i'm not sure if the meaning of the -i 
mke2fs parameter matches the one for coreutils (busybox labels it as ratio).

find attached a patch that fixes those issues.
