Merged requested to merge bundle-libarchive-15-10-backport into 15-10-stable
What does this MR do and why?
Backport !6805 (merged) to 15.10.x series.
If libarchive is present in system library locations and not bundled with omnibus-gitlab package, then Chef will incorrectly attempt to use it, and can potentially fail as seen from #7741 (closed). Hence, we need to bundle libarchive in the package.
