The Linux Kernel has a limit imposed to it in include/linux/limits.h
What I am trying to do is build a backup server that our Apple computers will use together with rsync to backup files to. The problem I face is that Apple HFS+ don't have a limit to EA so it has files with more then 64k of EA in it.
Hello,If I understands it correctly XFS don't have a limit to the size of extended attributes(EA) but Linux impose a limit at 64k.
Changing this values feels unsafe because they will be system wide.
Is the any possibility to combine Linux + XFS to make a backup that works with EA or is this more a question for kernel.org?
