If the disk is from FreeBSD, you mount with -o stripxattr. When
you read it, USER "foo.bar" becomes user.foo.bar. When you write
user.foo.bar, it is stored as USER "foo.bar". 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 "foo.bar"
remains foo.bar when read. And when foo;bar is writte, it goes to USER
It seems to work, doesn't it?
