[Bug-cpio] File permissions in pass through mode

I believe that there is a bug in cpio-2.7 in pass through mode. The file permissions of executables are being set to “600” instead of “755” during my testing. I have reverted to cpio version 2.5 and this problem disappears.


I am running Linux on an ARM processor. My test command line is “find / -xdev | cpio –pvmd /tmp”.


The problem only occurs in 2.7 in pass through mode, creating a intermediate archive and then extracting it works fine.


Let me know if you need more information.
