Enclosed is a patch that's intended to allow use of not only lzma but also lzip and xz within tarfs. I also rearranged the LZMA detection to make removing LZMA-Alone detection easier, should that ever happen.

It's a cut-down version of my integration patch, with only the vfs stuff. As usual, read the patch at least three times before use.

Something can probably be salvaged, e.g. changes to vfs/extfs/ulha.in, but the rest I think is already there and LZMA_Alone we probably do not want anymore, right?

Replying to zaytsev:

Right, because it is deprecated.
