            Bug ID: 11526
           Summary: tar: archive with GNU volume label rejected
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.33.x
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: mgorny at gentoo.org
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

When trying to extract an archive that contains GNU volume label, busybox tar
fails:

$ busybox tar -xf gnu.tar 
tar: unknown typeflag: 0x56

It would be nice if 'V' members were simply ignored (or at least written to
file, as POSIX specifies for unknown typeflags).

To reproduce:

echo test > input.txt
tar -cf gnu.tar -V test input.txt
