The problem is the hard coded position of the tar option in
--no-recursion of dpkg-deb

In that case I don't think it makes sense to create our own version of
dpkg-deb, so instead of a tar backport, I propose to apply the fix for
the ACL problem to tar 1.27, If I remember the patch applies cleanly.

In the meantime if you have installed the backported tar 1.28, I
recommand to revert to tar 1.27 with

apt install tar=1.27.1-2+b1

I don't see this package in pvetest so it should not be needed except if
you built the package yourself.
