The default set of utilities configured by busybox could also stand to be
updated.  In both 1.2.1 and 1.7.2 (and for that matter, 1.8.2 in Poky's
repository), the provided (default) defconfig specifies:

  * no 'nice' command (but 'renice' is there);

  * 'xargs' doesn't support the '-0' flag (even though 'find' has '-print0'); and

  * 'find' doesn't have the '-delete' expression

Other changes might also be useful, so I'd encourage a thorough re-evaluation of
all of the default options by someone who knows their stuff.

And to fix part of another bug I submitted (that would be bug #870), I
personally would set "CONFIG_INSTALL_NO_USR=y" so people can mount a memory card
partition at /usr and still allow the boot/init process to complete successfully
without it.
