[Buildroot] EABI toolchains do not free init in busybox

I get nothing.

freeing init.........

I can pass init=busybox and get the busybox help output, and I can make
a hello world app say hello world,  but it doesnt give me a shell.

I traced it to setting the consoles in busybox init, it seems to die
with snprintf.
