Summary0000257: file -i doesn't recognize xz files
Descriptionfile -i doesn't recognize xz files possibly because the stock magic file is broken.
Steps To Reproduce$ file -i xxx.xz

With file 5.39, I got:
xxx.xz: application/x-xz; charset=binary

With newest file 5.40, I got:
xxx.xz: application/octet-stream; charset=binary
Additional InformationI did git-bisect and found commit 3ebd747d (Add checksum for XZ) introduced the bug. I don't know the format so IDK how to fix it.

OS: Arch Linux, latest packages
Kernel: 5.11.11-zen1-1-zen
TagsNo tags attached.
