Summary:                    rm -f doesn't remove when input/output error
Description: 
busybox rm version with "force" option doesn't behave like the fileutils
one (my rm version come from the FEDORA CORE repository, package
"coreutils-6.9-17.fc8.src.rpm").

In fact, I have some corrupted files, "ls" or "lstat" displays
"Input/output error" on them. And the busybox 1.10.2 version of "rm -f"
too! So I need the "fileutils" rm version to remove these files.

Did you run "rm -f" under strace? It is needed to find out what different
kernel syscall was used.

Without this info it is virtually impossible to do anything about it.
