libc: limit Unix EAs to specific file systems

Reported by: bird Owned by: bird
Priority: normal Milestone: libc-0.6.1
Component: libc Version: 0.6
Severity: normal Keywords: libc unix-attributes ea


Fat32 does not implement EAs efficiently, and some other IFSes doesn't do it at all. The solution is to add a property to the volume information objects which indicates whether or not it can deal with UnixEAs. A global env.var. for disabling it would also be nice.

We're now only reading and writing UnixEAs on HPFS, JFS, FAT and RAMFS volumes. A 0.7 task will be created for making this configurable using an env.var. or something.
