Hello,

here is another patch which for some reason didn't get merged into the 
upstream version: the current attribute copying functions attr_copy_file and 
attr_copy_fd is a static list of exceptions for attributes that need special 
treatment. The list of those attributes tends to change (slowly) with kernel 
versions. We replaced the static list with a config file a while ago; this is 
the patch used. Any objections to merging this into the upstream version as 
well?

Attached is the patch, and an xattr.conf example.

Thanks,
Andreas
