I've finally gotten 'cpio' into a shape where it could be useable. This version can archive and extract directories, sockets, FIFOs, devices, symlinks, and regular files. Supported options are -iot, -H FMT (which is a dummy right now). It only writes newc, and could read newc or newcrc. This does NOT implement -d, which essentially is equivalent to mkdir -p $(dirname $FILE) for every file that needs it. Hard links are not supported, though it would be easy to add them given a hash table or something like that. I also have not implemented the "<n> blocks" output on stderr. If desired, I can add it pretty simply. There is one assumption this makes: that the mode of a file, as mode_t, is bitwise equivalent to the mode as defined for the cpio format. This is true of Linux, but is not mandated by POSIX. If it is compiled for a system where that is false, the archives will not be portable.

# modinfo does not need to output fields in a specified order.
# Instead, there are labelled fields.  We can use sort to make up for this.
# Other issues to beware of are the volatile nature of srcversion and vermagic,
# which change from kernel to kernel and can be disabled. 
# We grep to remove these.

#We expect they have ne2k-pci as a module.
