Options to control option handling in file lists.

The --verbatim-files-from option disables option handling in
file lists. The --no-verbatim-files-from reverts its effect.

The --null option implies --verbatim-files-from. This restores
the documented behavior, broken by 26538c9b.

* src/common.h (verbatim_files_from_option): New global.
* src/names.c (name_elt): New member: file.verbatim
(name_add_file): Take 'verbatim' state as its third parameter.
(read_next_name): Don't call handle_option if file.verbatim
is set.
* src/tar.c: New options --verbatim-files-from and

* doc/tar.texi: Document --verbatim-files-from and
--no-verbatim-files-from options.
* NEWS: Update.
* configure.ac: Version 1.28.90

tar: fix symlink race and symlink transform bug

Problem reported by Tobias Stoeckmann in:
* gnulib.modules: Add areadlinkat-with-size.
* src/create.c: Include areadlink.h.
(dump_file0): Use areadlinkat_with_size, rather than trying to do
it by hand, incorrectly. This also avoids assumption that
the symlink contents fit on the stack. Also, use the transformed
link name, not the original link name, when deciding whether the
name is long enough to require writing a long link.

2782. By Paul Eggert

tar: port -d to longer symlinks

* src/compare.c (diff_symlink):
Don't use alloca on symlink length; it might be too big for the stack.
Don't assume that readlinkat's return value fits in 'int'.
Prefer memcmp to strncmp where either will do.

2781. By Paul Eggert

tar: port to recent gnulib

* gnulib.modules: Remove 'acl' and add 'file-has-acl'.

2780. By Paul Eggert

tar: pacify GCC 5.1 -Wformat-signedness

* lib/wordsplit.c (struct wordsplit_node.flags):
Now unsigned, so that 'printf ("%x", p->flags)' doesn't provoke GCC.
* src/incremen.c (read_num, dumpdir_ok):
Don't printf an int with %x or %o.

2779. By Sergey Poznyakoff

Fix extraction from concatenated incremental archives.

* src/common.h (remove_delayed_set_stat): New proto.
* src/extract.c (free_delayed_set_stat)
(remove_delayed_set_stat): New function.
(apply_nonancestor_delayed_set_stat): Use free_delayed_set_stat.
* src/misc.c (safer_rmdir): Remove delayed_set_stat entry
corresponding to the removed directory.
* tests/incr10.at: New test case.
* tests/Makefile.am: Add new test.
* tests/testsuite.at: Likewise.

2778. By Sergey Poznyakoff

Fix make installcheck

Make installcheck would fail unless make check had been run before it.
Reported by Erik Brangs <email address hidden>

* tests/Makefile.am (installcheck-local): Depend on $(check_PROGRAMS)
