Priwiet Sergiej,

I have reviewed various archives made with various options and I've
noticed that tar exits silently on the /sys/module/8250/parameters/probe_rsa

i.e. any files that come after that one do not get to the archive.

When I've done --exclude=/sys it started to work.

Abstracting from whether it makes sense to back-up /sys or not I have
the feeling that tar should not exit silently making me believe that the
archive is valid.

Or do I make a mistake somewhere?

I have a little trouble uploading V1.16.1 to this machine but nothing in
the release notes was suggesting that the problem was corrected.
