            Bug ID: 8556
           Summary: sysctl --system option is unsupported
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.24.x
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: austinenglish at gmail.com
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net

austin at austin1:~$ busybox sysctl --system
sysctl: unrecognized option '--system'
BusyBox v1.24.1 (2015-12-08 17:41:42 CST) multi-call binary.

Usage: sysctl [OPTIONS] [KEY[=VALUE]]...

Show/set kernel parameters

    -e    Don't warn about unknown keys
    -n    Don't show key names
    -a    Show all values
    -w    Set values
    -p FILE    Set values from FILE (default /etc/sysctl.conf)
    -q      Set values silently

This is needed by OpenRC:
Standalone sysctl supports a --system option which is very useful
because it reads files from system configuration directories.

OpenRC uses this in the sysctl boot script, so it would be good if
busybox's sysctl could support it.
