$ grep CAF *.[ch]

So, nothing tests that particular one.
FWIW, this is related to changes for the '-A' option, which I think is a close
relative of something I send-pr'd a while back; I was mostly curious because
there were a couple changes I didn't recognize, and I was wondering what they
were for. I've been planning to submit the same changes to other systems
using this 'pax', and if these are better fixes, I want to use 'em. :)
