Description

When extracting archives created with GNU tar, the illumos native tar often produces warnings about extended headers, for example:

typeflag 'g' not recognized, converting to regular file (Global extended header)
typeflag 'x' not recognized, converting to regular file (Extended attributes)

It would be nice if these headers could be handled properly.
