      Description

      Kit Westneat commented:

      "Older versions of tar have to read in the entire file to figure out
      what parts are sparse. Newer versions should skip that if the # of
      blocks are 0, but I'm not sure if that made it into lustre-tar yet.

      Here's the patch:
      http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-tar/2010-08/msg00043.html
      "

      This hasn't made it into lustre-tar yet, and may be worth looking into.
