Is this a kernel issue?

Seems to me that this sort of issues are likely to be on the user space fs implementation side; that is, I doubt the FUSE kernel patch itself controls the permissions found in a tar file. Therefore, IMAO, this shouldn't be an issue against including the FUSE patch into mainline.
Of course, a case could be made that the FUSE kernel patch should prevent that sort of things, but that just gets on a slippery slope on what as-is harmless things it should prevent, as well as reduce the flexibility of the architecture. Which would be bad.
