CONFIG_CIFS_XATTR: CIFS extended attributes

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_CIFS_XATTR has multiple definitions:

CIFS extended attributes (EXPERIMENTAL) found in fs/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_CIFS_XATTR:

Help text

Extended attributes are name:value pairs associated with inodes by the kernel or by users (see the attr(5) manual page, or visit http://acl.bestbits.at/ for details). CIFS maps the name of extended attributes beginning with the user namespace prefix to SMB/CIFS EAs. EAs are stored on Windows servers without the user namespace prefix, but their names are seen by Linux cifs clients prefaced by the user namespace prefix. The system namespace (used by some filesystems to store ACLs) is not supported at this time.

If unsure, say N.
