These are fixed in the latest version of the patch.  With 2.6.9 being
released in the very near future (maybe even today), you may want to use
the 2.6.9pre3 release or the latest "nightly" tar file instead of 2.6.8.
The xattrs code has been ported to work with OS X, so it shouldn't be
hard to add the code necessary to get it to work with FreeBSD.
