Xfstests #62 was recently enabled by commit b2b36d0a4.

However, this test is failing for ext4 because ext4 doesn't support
extended attributes on anything other than regular files and
directories.  This is behavior is documented in the attr(5) man page:

(3) Modify test #62 so that it can support both the XFS and Linux
generic behavior.

(5) Change XFS to match the generic behavior, and then change test #62.

I would volunteer for implementing the required changes for option #3 and start next week except people favour option #5.
