Yes, it fixes the failure on a filesystem which does not support
user EAs (tmpfs is one of them, it supports system EAs but not user).

Yes, I already gave it a try right after your previous email.
It immediately fixed the first out of 4 issues I wrote about in
the same email above.

I was more concerned about the other failures, and once again tried
to address these, now once you gave me some clues about where things
are defined (the thing to search was "[tmpenc]", so I found
selftest/target/ file.

So yes, this one is fixed by using xattr_tdb.  And I can't dig there
anymore today to see where the other 4 tests are failing -- I'm just
too tired now, need some rest.

I'll try to find out why the other 3 are failing tomorrow, hopefully.

Thank you for the support!
