Yeah, but:
$ grep CAF *.[ch]
options.c:                      flg |= CAF;
options.h:#define       CAF     0x00040000      /* nonstandard extension */

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.  :)
