How do I store the metadata in the extended attribute region of the lower file?

Asked by Dustin Kirkland  on 2008-09-25

If your kernel has support for it, mount with the -o xattr option. Be sure to preserve the extended attributes in the lower files, or you will lose your data. Bear in mind that many userspace utilities such as tar lack extended attribute support, and so you need to use utilities like star with the proper options instead.
