Minor changes from debian patch on same issue.

Description of problem:

cpio provide doesnt honor the umask , i.e When trying to restored files using cpio from the tape drive the directories are created with 700 instead of 755(if umask is 0022). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

umask 0022
mkdir -p /tmp/test-tape/dir1/dir2
cd /tmp/test-tape/
touch a b c d e f
cd dir1
touch g h i j k l 
cd dir2
touch m n o p q r 
cd /tmp/test-tape/
ls -l | grep dir1 | awk ' { print $1  } ' 
mkdir -p /tmp/newdir/
find /tmp/test-tape/* -type f -print | cpio -pdvm /tmp/newdir/  &> /dev/null 
ls -l | grep dir1 | awk ' { print $1  } ' 

dir1 should be affected by the umask of the system.

Actual results:


Expected results:

sh testcase.sh
