So it is the context that xfstests is using, not contexts itself.  Xfstests is
using the nfs context, and using selinux contexts intercepts all getxattr calls,
so when send tries to copy the xattrs for the file it calls getxattr, and
because we are using the nfs context it returns EOPNOTSUPP from selinux, it
never makes it down to btrfs.  When using the actual real context it works fine
because it calls down into the file system.

Yeah I can do that, thanks,
