Might not be trivial, as limits are apparently different for symbolic
links and regular files, nevermind the fact that very similar versions
of tar (eg. Fedora 22 and Fedora rawhide) don't behave the same.

Anyway, if bumping the tar format is not acceptable, I guess the only
option is to shorten the name of the test case.
