If I have a normal file system, and in a directory is an entry with an
inode for a fifo (or a device), and I set an extended attribute on that
inode, then surely it will get stored in the file system, and not in the
fifo (or device)?

So if the fifo (or device) code gets involved in this, then the bug is
there, I'd think?
