This problem occurs because tmpfs support is not enabled in your kernel
configuration. Setting CONFIG_TMPFS and CONFIG_TMPFS_POSIX_ACL will
solve this issue. I will add these kernel requirements in the help menu
of Systemd.

Thanks for noticing! As module-init-tools has been deprecated in favor
of kmod, the tools lsmod, modprobe and friends are now symlinks to kmod.
Systemd directly invokes kmod, so it can not be used with the ones
provided by Busybox.
I will had a 'select BR2_PACKAGE_BUSYBOX_SHOW_OTHER' in the Config.in of
