This series adds a test that exercises git archive's pax header code.
It checks for tar versions that don't support pax headers and works
around their deficiency.

The first five patches are cleanups and refactorings to centralize
tar calls into a helper function.  The last patch adds the workaround
at this central place and a file to the test archive whose name is too
long to fit into the path field of a standard tar header, making a pax
extended header necessary.

Forgot to mention that the last patch was prompted by Thomas' recent test coverage patches.
