bug#11010: tar-subfile-save-buffer: Buffer is read-only: #<buffer foo.ta

Opening a tar file and then a sub file, used to be able to save.
Doesn't seem to be the case in the latest Emacs pretest.  In fact,
everything's opening as read-only.

Test case:

M-! touch foo; tar cf foo.tar foo RET
C-x C-f foo.tar RET f C-x q
C-x s !

The above should save the files including the sub file, but instead
complains about the tar file being.

The following patch removes the C-x q and saving actually works.
Seems this bug was a result of tar-mode inheriting from special-mode.

Thanks for Emacs,

        * tar-mode.el (tar-mode): Fix saving by conditionally undoing
        `special-mode' setting of `buffer-read-only'.
