Is bz2 compression used?

It looks like busybox is compiled with bz2 enabled but I didn't found that it is used anywhere.
bzip2 is widely used for building packages but OpenWrt doesn't use it.

I created a PR that disables /usr/bin/bunzip2 and /usr/bin/bzcat

In BB config said that this may save up to 8.7 kb

Yes you can, but I dont usually bother customizing busybox and such unless it’s for a 4MB device.


Interesting why it was enabled before. Should I report a bug on this?
