busybox: S10mdev: fix module autoloading
Commit b4fc5a180c (package/busybox: support spaces in module aliases in mdev) changed the mdev coldplugging to handle sysfs path elements and modalias values containing spaces. This unfortunately doesn't work as was recently reported: The problem is that sort -z also expects the fields of the input files to be zero terminated, which is not the case for modalias sysfs entries. So drop the -z option to sort. Spaces in modalias entries could be handled with the xargs -d '\n' option, but that is unfortunately not supported by the busybox applet. Instead, use tr to convert newlines to zeros so we can use xargs -0.
