Updated busybox from 1.11.3 to 1.13.3

There are 2 new applets: blkid and devmem in newer busybox (trunk previously used 1.11.3)

Also a LOT of bugs have been fixed since..

I re-created some of patches so now they support this newer version, some patches were so off the chart, that I wasn't able to do anything to them; here's list of patches that are removed by this update, because I wasn't able to re-create them..

002-darwin_compile_fix.patch (seems to be fixed by busybox)
450-httpd_accept_header.patch (is included with newer busybox already)
470-insmod_search.patch (I failed to create this patch)
530-unsigned_bitwise_ops.patch (I failed to create this patch)
810-lsmod_infinite_loop.patch (I failed to create this patch)

also, it might be that patch 243-udhcpc_changed_ifindex.patch might be already fixed other way than the way that this patch uses to correct this problem, but I wasn't sure so I kept it for a while..

patch propably won't remove files mentioned before..

I added patches from fixes-1.13.3 of busybox site to this build.
Also I noticed that I missed some applets previously, so I added showkey applet support.
I left out support for rdev and setfont as they seem not useful in distribution like openwrt - rdev even might be dangerous..

New diff overwrites old..

new patch did not overwrite old one - it seems I have insufficient privileges here to do so even though this is my own ticket.

Just ignore first diff..

It seems to compile just fine - but something is bugging with it.

Because I don't have a serial in my routers - I cannot debug it.
But well, it compiles and does not start firewall or nat (or seem to get ip in the lan) - it forwards me to WAN device and clients get an INTERNET ip address instead of LAN ip address so it just lets connections go through..

Maybe someone with a serial could have a look?
