Hello all,

As for now I continue my work on Toybox.

Xavier, you sent patch that adds dependency on libsmack to Toybox.

I just wonder if Toybox maintainers do not mind that:
maybe they would prefer just reads of smackfs and proc or xattrs?
(I would prefer libsmack though)

Best regards,
Jan Cybulski
