Hi Jeremy, list,

Please find attached patch which handles storing xattrs in efficient way for Veritas File System (VxFS) using VxFS library.

This patch handles:
1.            Storing xattrs using VxFS library calls
2.            Handling backward compatibility where if xattrs are stored with old way then store them with new way .
3.            This makes use of vxfsmisc.so in user space which is provided by VxFS and is open sourced. It can be found at: http://www.veritas.com/community/downloads/vxfsmisc-library

This patch applies to Samba master. Please let me know your comments.

Thanks and Regards
Abhidnya Joshi
