On -current, cpio always prints "cpio: Header checksum X does not match Y"
message when it is processing -i (extract) or -t (list).

orinoco% touch aaa
orinoco% touch bbb
orinoco% ls aaa bbb |cpio -o > test.cpio
orinoco% cpio -t < test.cpio
cpio: Header checksum 0 does not match 10352

In fact, this message is produced when the archive is not an tar format,
and there's no harm in executing.

Is this message really necessary?
