Summary:                    segfault in swapon/swapoff
Description: 
busybox version 1.9.2
platform: mips (linkstation 2)
kernel: 2.4.20

I attached the output of strace. But swapon/swapoff are not the only
commands segfaulting. crond for example is also affected, even when I only
run "crond --help". But the linkstation comes with an own implementation of
cron, so I'm still using that one. And though swapon/swapoff don't work,
the swap partition is working fine, because swap space is available, I've
checked it with "free".

What toolchain are you using?

Can you retry with a current toolchain (gcc-4.3.1, binutils-2.18 at the
time of this writing) and with busybox-1.11.x ?
