tar: filter CVEs using vendor name
Recently a number of CVEs have been logged against a nodejs project called "node-tar". These appear as false positives against the GNU tar being built by Yocto. Some of these have been manually excluded using CVE_CHECK_WHITELIST. To avoid this problem, use the vendor name (in addition to package name) for filtering CVEs. The syntax for this is: CVE_PRODUCT = "vendor:package" When not specified, the vendor defaults to "%" which matches anything.
