Yes it is used to make a copy.
It is a convenient one-liner.
I am a bit surprised that you need to install DPDK with busybox.
The busybox systems are generally cross-built and prepared out of the box,
with the host tools.
However, if you feel it is important to install DPDK on such target,
you are welcome to propose a patch.
