Tar MT

Tar compressor with multithreading compression, replace the old version from Qnap firmware

Actual embbeded version for tar command on Qnap is from Stone Age and have limited format support..
I bring you the version i am using every day to accellerate compression and uncompress different format like tar.xz

this version is built with pigz / unpigz, to allow tar to compress with multithreading...
you will really feel difference if your CPU has multi-core

pigz / unpigz are also added to NAS $PATH... but you can find other comrpessor like lz4 inside /opt/TarMT/bin

Your gratitude and finance will help me to continue integration of this QPKG and maintain up to date versions.
