If you replace that with "tail -1 <trace", this code
in busybox will be used:

off_t current = lseek(fd, 0, SEEK_END);
if (current > 0) {
...
#if 1 /* This is technically incorrect for *LONG* strings, but very useful */
/* Optimizing count-lines case if the
file is seekable.
* We assume the lines are <64k.
* (Users complain that tail takes too long
* on multi-gigabyte files) */
off = (count | 0xf); /* for small
counts, be more paranoid */
if (off > (INT_MAX / (64*1024)))
off = (INT_MAX / (64*1024));
current -= off * (64*1024);
if (current < 0)
current = 0;
xlseek(fd, current, SEEK_SET);
#endif

Example: "tail -1 10GB_FILE" seeks back ~1 mbyte and looks for the last line:

lseek(3, 0, SEEK_END) = 10991787403
lseek(3, 10990804363, SEEK_SET) = 10990804363
read(3, "\0\0020d\340\326\0\0\0\0020e\6\364\0\0\0\0020eMI\0\0\0\0020el\210\0\0"...,
