From: Luc Creti <luc.creti@atos.net>

The host tar is used to create the archives in the VCS download backends
(git, cvs, svn, hg...) and tar 1.30 and forward have changed the way
they generate the archives.

So, all the archives that have been generated before 1.30 was released
are not bit-for-bit reproducible (even though the extracted content
would be), so the hashes we have for those archives would not match.

Hence host-tar must be kept at version 1.29.

For the target variant, this is less important, so bump it to the latest
version.

Fixes: https://bugs.busybox.net/show_bug.cgi?id=12256
