I don't think it's an except but in addition.  Wherever we do a strerror
in the attr code we will have to special case ENODATA on Linux and only
there.  Independent of that I think we would better of using the raw
syscalls in platforms already using binary namespaces rather than double
translation.  Note that this is only applicable for the IRIX-heritage
attr_* routines exports by libattr, not the *xattr routines it also
exports.
