Description

The convention with filesystems that have virtual xattrs is to not report them via listxattr(). A lot of archiving tools will use listxattr to figure out which xattrs to preserve, and that breaks down with virtual ones.

I've proposed a kernel patch that should fix this there:

We should have the userland client follow suit.
