If the disk is from FreeBSD, you mount with  -o stripxattr. When
you read it, USER "" becomes When you write, it is stored as USER "". Therefore you can use 
the Linux-like API and you will not screw up what is stored on disk.

If the disk is nativr, you mount without -o stripxattr, and USER ""
remains when read. And when foo;bar is writte, it goes to  USER 

It seems to work, doesn't it?
