Depends on how parent inode pointers are implemented, this folding the

We might have to introduce _locked version at that point.  But I'd like
to keep the xfs_name removal and other assorted cleanups.


locking is only one issue, xfs_attr_(get/set/remove) are asciii only whereas the xfs_attr_(get/set/remove)_int versions are more generic. I am thinking of not just parent inode pointers but a non-ascii character set.
