Practically missing cpio(1L) man page since Oct 22 2006

The point of MFC'ing cpio(1) changes is that it has fixed some old bugs
that can potentially damage user data.

Personally I'd rather replace it with the BSD pax(1) found in the base
system, if we had a proper GNU cpio(1) test suite to make sure that we
did not break something.  It might be interesting to do check the recent
NetBSD/OpenBSD changes and apply the appropriate ones.
