[BusyBox] Boggling at tar.c a bit...

What does the #ifdef __gnuc__ bit do?

We have a volatile local variable (vfork_exec_errno), which is interacting 
with vfork in a way that seems unnecessarily subtle.  (Do parent and child 
really reliably share a stack there?  Why did the threading people need 
kernel support for thread local storage then?)
