commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=fc6b5e4411992f05ab45dac90be01ade8279e000
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

* The PID file is not created unless the '-m' option is passed to

* Remove the mark '-m 0' option as it's not supported by busybox's

* Syslogd and Klogd forks to background by default giving as a result
  that the pid stored in the PID file is not correct. Let the
  background job be done by 'start-stop-daemon' by passing '-n'
  (foreground) to the daemons and '-b' to start-stop-daemon. This
  way the pid stored in the PID files is correct.
