[PATCH] Support for HFS+ compression and symlinks


This patch adds support for HFS+ Compression (added in Mac OS X 10.6) and HFS+ symlinks.

In current versions of DiscUtils:
  • HFS+ compressed files would be extracted as zero-byte files
  • symlinks would be extracted as text files, with the name of the symlink target as their contents
A good test case for this fix was the latest XCode .dmg, which contains many such files.

These patches fix that:
Support for HFS+ compression is in these patches

Support for symlinks is in this patch

It is not my intention to keep mirroring discutils on Github, so if you apply the patches, I'd be more than happy to delete the Github repository.
