[autocreate extended attribute backend]
Such a behavior could be triggered by a new kernel option such
as UFS_EXTATTR_AUTOCREATE. It could hold the default size for autocreated
attributes. (e.g.: options UFS_EXTATTR_AUTOCREATE=1024 to get 1024 bytes
long attributes).

Here is a patch that implements this option. Is it reasonable to commit it?

I can't comment on the content of the patch itself, but I am definitely in favor of moving toward default support for extended attributes, and this _seems_ like a good start. Thank you for working on this.
