I'm not worried about that 'read' call.  I'm worried about the
dozens or hundreds of other system calls scattered all over 'tar'
and the libraries that 'tar' uses.

The signal handler in question is a relatively recent change to
'tar', and I expect that it'll be a more-innocuous change if it's
used with SA_RESTART.
