Summary:                    BusyBox 1.8.2 fdisk doesn't read from stdin
Description: 
busybox is used for unattended Linux installations.
During the installation hard drive is partitioned by means of fdisk.
fdisk is used in a batch mode.
This means text file with fdisk commands is prepared -
see attached fdisk-commands file
(partition size values are variable, fdisk-commands is used to create 3
partitions -boot root and swap).
And then fdisk-commands file is passed to fdisk through the stdin.
Somthing like

fdisk /dev/hda < fdisk-commands

In all busybox till 1.7.3 this works fine
But in busybox 1.8.0-1.8.2 fdisk doesn't read commands from stdin.
