At the moment the remote syslog messages use various facilities, making it difficult to filter them using the standard syslog.conf selection mechanisms. Please consider using a fixed (configurable) syslog facility like local0 instead.

The syslogd(klogd) used is the one out of busybox:
# System Logging Utilities
# CONFIG_FEATURE_LOGREAD_REDUCED_LOCKING is not set
The busybox version is very limited and does not have a syslog.conf option.
Here are the available options:
BusyBox v1.1.2 (2008.01.06-11:30+0000) multi-call binary
Usage: syslogd [OPTION]...
Linux system and kernel logging utility.
Note that this version of syslogd ignores /etc/syslog.conf.
-m MIN Minutes between MARK lines (default=20, 0=off)
-n Run as a foreground process
-O FILE Use an alternate log file (default=/var/log/messages)
-S Make logging output smaller.
-s SIZE Max size (KB) before rotate (default=200KB, 0=off)
-b NUM Number of rotated logs to keep (default=1, max=99, 0=purge)
-R HOST[:PORT] Log to IP or hostname on PORT (default PORT=514/UDP)
-L Log locally and via network logging (default is network only)
-C [size(KiB)] Log to a circular buffer (read the buffer using logread)
For this a full version of syslogd and klogd is needed.
