[Dev] problem of wrong prinstine tar file

This is caused by corrupt tarball in pristine-tar branch, and gbs will use upstream branch to generate tar ball.
It will not affect the final build results.

To fix pristine-tar branch, please use new version of pristine-tar, which will be released next week together with gbs, to commit new tar ball to pristine-tar branch.

Markus, please correct me if I am wrong, as I can't reproduce this issue with gbs import and export.

Hi Qiang,
Do you have any idea about the following error, which is reported when I build gdb locally. Is it the bug of gbs or gdb?
