Cannot backup/restore to tape on Linux

Gemstone/S executables do not recognize Linux tape devices, and therefore backups to and restores from tape on Linux do not work.

Workaround

perform fullBackupTo: to disk, then tar this backup to the tape.  To
restore, tar from tape to disk and perform restoreFromBackup: on the
disk version.
