Won't you folks have similar problems with other GNU utilities?
GNU 'touch', for example.  Can you propose patches for all
these?  Just look for O_NONBLOCK in the source code.

These two bugs (tar and gzip) were reported by our customer.
I'm not aware of any bug reports for the other utilities.

I don't have access to this kind of storage devices so I can't test it.
Perhaps Ron could ;-)

We did a quick source search of some other obvious utilities and did not find any other incidences using the O_NONBLOCK flag. I cannot guarantee that search was exhaustive and it was based on current SLES11 SP2 sources so there is always the potential that more of these problem will be found in the future. If so, we will just have to file additional bugs :-)
