    vfs_acl_xattr: avoid needlessly supplying a large buffer to getxattr()
    When obtaining the security descriptor via getxattr(), first try
    optimistically to supply a buffer of 4K, and if that turns out
    to be too small, determine the correct buffer size.
    The previous behavior of falling back to a 64K buffer encountered
    problem with Linux prior to version 3.6, due to pyisical memory
    fragmentation. With those kernels, as long as the buffer is 8K or
    smaller, getting the xattr is much less prone to failure due to
    memory fragmentation.
