Builds fail semi-randomly on s390x. The symptom is the tarball fails
to unpack properly:
DEBUG util.py:585: BUILDSTDERR: error: unpacking of archive failed on file
/builddir/build/SOURCES/otp-OTP-22.0.7.tar.gz;5d725d41: cpio: read failed - Inappropriate
ioctl for device
DEBUG util.py:585: BUILDSTDERR: error:
/builddir/build/originals/erlang-22.0.7-1.el8.src.rpm cannot be installed
Rerunning the build is normally sufficient to work around the problem,
but I wonder if anyone has any clue about this bug? Seems like it's a
problem in librpm, cpio or the s390x kernel, but why would it be random ...
I've got a couple of loops running over and over again on a real
Fedora/s390x server unpacking the tarball and the srpm respectively
and neither one appears to fail at all.
