  MFC r182097:  Permit restoring of path/.. if SECURE_NODOTDOT was not specified.
  With SECURE_NODOTDOT, this isn't needed because we refuse to restore
  anything with '..' in the path.  Without, we used to refuse path/..
  as a special case (on the grounds that it was silly), but "cpio -p .."
  is a common and perfectly valid idiom that incidentally copies "."
  to "..".
