Hi Denys,

(at least newer) coreutils package contain a TIMEOUT command with
a slightly different syntax then Busybox. Is this intentional or a
bug? What about upstream compatibility?


Coreutils:
  timeout [-s SIGNAL] NUMBER[SUFFIX] PROG [ARGS]

  NUMBER is SECONDS except with suffix m, h or d

Busybox:
  timeout [-s SIGNAL] [-t SECONDS] PROG [ARGS]
