[Bug-tar] xattr support on Linux

There's a long-standing bug open against my Debian packaging of tar
asking me to include one or another of the xattr support patches.  


I've held off through a combination of wanting to stay as close as
possible to the upstream sources and an apparently erroneous assumption
that with several xattr patches floating around that eventually one
would be merged.

What's the story here?  Are there plans to add xattr support to tar?  If
not, would it help if I pick one, merge it, and expose it, say, through
inclusion in Debian's experimental tree?
