The files in directory hostap.git/hostapd with commit id
b4206832e6f22f2eb5a774b04c55e76332363ec8 are same with those fils in
directory hostapd inside released tar ball hostapd-0.6.2.tar.gz.

But it is not for commit id 034e1da1ecbb7cb7818411e7f71c8d40b42828be and

Following is my commands to compare the files for hostapd version 0.4.8

# git-clone git:// hostap.git
# git-archive --format=tar --prefix=hostap-0.4.8.git/ --remote=./hostap.git/
034e1da1ecbb7cb7818411e7f71c8d40b42828be | tar -xvf -
# (download
# tar zxf hostapd-0.4.8.tar.gz
# diff -urN hostapd-0.4.8/ hostap-0.4.8.git/hostapd/

Then, there are 32 files' changes dummped.

I think these two directories should be same.

Is there any command I used wrong?
