42 hardlinks to the same i-node. I make a crc-cpio archive with

50 Hi, I was wondering whether it was a bug or a feature that GNU
51 cpio, while in copy-in mode, will create a multiply-linked set
52 of files all of size 0 if the last linked file is not copied in

85 Hello, Recently at OEone we fixed a bug in GNU cpio-2.4.2: When

94 I have seen corrupted files as a result of using the

96 active/in-use (and growing) files are being copied. The problem

154 This patch enables cpio to be verbose about the files that it
155 does not copy, which is very handy for seeing cpio's progress
156 through a tape or simply for debuging. The patch along with a
