+ This is another good way to see what's built into busybox.
+ Note that the standalone shell requires CONFIG_BUSYBOX_EXEC_PATH
+ to be set appropriately, depending on whether or not /proc/self/exe is
+ available or not. If you do not have /proc, then point that config option
+ to the location of your busybox binary, usually /bin/busybox.

+ your rootfs, you must mount /proc beforehand.)
