Hi Thomas,

> Tar archives with long path names get truncated by CPIO.

So far CPIO handles only ustar archives, it does not handle GNU
extensions to tar format.  The archive you are trying to list
via cpio uses GNU @LongLink@ headers to represent long file names,
which cpio is unable to handle.

No, unfortunately there is none.
