commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=5b5feea8753520320d11896a24b970c60331bcdc
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Three of our download backends need a host tar that can generate
reproducible archives: cvs, git, and svn. The other two, bzr and hg,
use their internal implementation.

So, for those three that need it, and a dependency on host-tar when the
system tar is not appropriate.
