Package: busybox
Version: v1.31.1
Severity: wishlist

This implementation assumes that iflag/oflag=direct will be used only on
block devices and files that are multiples of pagesize, and makes no
effort to solve issues with unaligned or partial reads (unlike gnu
coreutils dd)

Using iflag/oflag=direct will also limit usage block sizes, which must
also be a multiple of pagesize
