I don't have any vfs module enabled. So at least some streams do work
without streams_xattr. As I already mentioned the :Zone-Identifier
stream is working to a certain degree.
If I store a file (with Firefox) on the share this stream is created and
the explorer property sheet evaluates its content and tells me the file
is from the internet (I can "unlock" the file too).
It also works if I manually fakes the file's origin. But on the other
hand, this stream is not created when I copy a file from another NTFS drive.
As there is no use for xattrs in my file system I'd like to get this
stuff working without them.
