Summary:                    tar does not remove leading / from hard link target
Description: 
Since busybox tar does not strip the leading slash when saving a hard link,
attempting to restore a tar with hard links in it on a mounted volume
results in EXDEV from link(2). A patch is provided which fixes the
problem.
