You should not use this parameter outside testing.  the posix_eadb
module and posix:eadb is for systems that have no working file system
xattr access.  You need to fix that.

Just ignore it for now.  We have two different loadparm systems, which
two different sets of allowed options.  We will eventually get them
merged.  This is listed as a known issue in the WHATSNEW
