Subject: Re: [PATCH] kheaders: prefer gtar over tar for better compatibility

I thought I had relied this before, but
something awkward was happening because
the original email was addressed to
yamada.masahiro@...ionext.com, which is
no longer valid.

Resending from masahiroy@...nel.org...






In the top Makefile, please add

TAR  = tar

and export TAR.



In kernel/gen_kheaders.sh,
please replace 'tar' with ${TAR:-tar}





On Gentoo systems, you can do

 $ make TAR=gtar


or if you need to run gen_kheaders.sh directly

 $ TAR=gtar scripts/gen_kheaders.sh


Thanks.
