Support job control in bash so SIGSTOP/susp is usable in an ssh terminal

I often find it useful being able to hit ctrl-z in my editor of choice in order to check something then return to editing my config file. On the Turris Omnia this doesn’t work. According to stty it should be sending the SIGSTOP:

root@turris:~# stty
speed 38400 baud; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>; eol2 = <undef>; swtch = <undef>;
start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W; lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;
-brkint -imaxbel iutf8

On further investigation I notice bash — GNU bash, version 4.4.11(1)-release (arm-openwrt-linux-gnu) — doesn’t include the bg and fg builtin commands so presumably it’s been compiled with job control disabled? Could this be enabled in a future build please? Many thanks.

EDIT: Likely to be included in a future update, see:
