+libelf: Fix dir traversal vuln in ar extraction.
+
+read_long_names terminates names at the first '/' found but then skips one
+character without checking (it's supposed to be '\n'). Hence the next name could
+start with any character including '/'. This leads to a directory traversal
+vulnerability at the time the contents of the archive is extracted.
+
+The danger is mitigated by the fact that only one '/' is possible in a resulting
+filename
+and only in the leading position. Hence only files in the root directory can be
+written via this vuln and only when ar is executed as root. The fix for the vuln
+is to not skip any characters while looking for '/'.
