It is also missing in glusterfs 3.4!
Just setup samba4 with glusterfs on centos 6.4. The same error.
Only the acl option is working. A work around to see the extended acls from
windows is to set the volume stat-prefetch off.

the option does appear to be there but it is either miss-named or doesn't
have an appropriate alias setup

glusterfs --help | grep -i attr

correct option name appears to be selinux

you could modify the mount script...
nano /sbin/mount.glusterfs

I can confirm this option doesn't appear to be in glusterfs 3.2.5 built on
Jan 31 2012 either as user_xattr or selinux

the operation of mount.glusterfs appears to be buggy when issued user_xattr
option - the log in /var/log/gluster/mnt.... indicates its trying to resolve
it as a host name

options are only specified after the volume when using the mount.glusterfs
script directly...
Usage:  mount.glusterfs <volumeserver>:<volumeid/volumeport> -o <options>

I believe when working directly with mount it's more normal to do as per man
mount [-fnrsvw] [-t vfstype] [-o options] device dir
