I had some preliminary Solaris xattr code in the git repo, though it had some
bugs.  I used some ideas from your patch to get squash the ones I saw, but the
result is not tested.  If you could snag the latest git repo or the latest
"nightly" tar file and try it out, let me know if you find any problems.

Note that my version just ignores symlink xattrs, as I'm not liking the idea of
attaching symlink xattrs to the parent directory.

I have been thinking that --fake-super should convert symlinks into regular
files on a system where NO_SYMLINK_XATTRS is defined (saving the symlink either
in the file contents or as a special rsync xattr), which would at least allow
backups of symlink xattrs onto a system that doesn't support that.
