            Bug ID: 9521
           Summary: ls without long still lstats each object in directory.
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.21.x
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: john.ata at baesystems.com
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

For some reason, a simple "ls" (without color) attempts to perform an lstat on
each file in a directory even though a readdir should have been sufficient to
display the file name.  This is unlike the standard Linux ls and seems less
performant because of the kernel overhead.
