Hi Håkon,

I've pushed this to the master branch and cherry-picked it to

    commit 937ee92013bed7b3ebd30fff2c17a751d37b1a61

        test-sendfiles: Feed `lzma -cd' stdin rather than a filename.
        Håkon Alstadheim reported that Debian's lzma-9.22-2 would complain at
        `lzma -cd foo.tar' with `unknown suffix -- unchanged' even though it was
        not being asked to alter the file, or produce a new one based on its
        filename.  This appears to be https://bugs.debian.org/700681.  The lzma
        from Arch Linux's xz 5.2.3-1 does no have this fault.  Work around it by
        feeding the file to decompress on standard input for all the compression
        programs being tested;  none of the others should mind.

Cheers, Ralph.
