Summary:                    df reports in kibibytes, claims kilobytes
Description: 
Since busybox df can't output sizes in bytes or known-size blocks, I had to
dive through the source to see if "kilobytes" in the help meant 1024 or
1000 bytes.  This bit of wasted time could have been saved if the help or
docs stated 1024, or if the text said "kibibytes" instead.
