Reiser4 has the right structures to store things like XATTRs without
stinking (unlike reiser3). Unfortunately, Resier4's developers were
told that their preferred files-as-directories interface for extended
attributes would be included in the mainline kernel around the time
hell freezes over. This has resulted in the code being pulled, and
extended attribute support in reiser4 has been left to bit rot.
Attention on bringing it back will be given once reiser4 makes it into
the mainline kernel... which is a sane ordering of priorities.
Frankly, somethinglike selinux attrs on tmpfs would be a lot more important..
SELinux attributes on tmpfs have been around for some time. They were
needed for udev with a tmpfs /dev.
