Greetings, Corinna Vinschen!

Bottom line is, if you want to handle DOS attributes in a special way
not covered by our POSIX emulation, user space has to do it.

Can something be implemented around getfattr to serve this use case in a more
POSIX'y way?

I was not previously much aware of get/setfattr, but I agree that that looks
like a possible way to provide access to the Windows SYS attribute and friends.
Not that I am that familiar with details of what NTFS, etc., provide, getfattr
may be a way to provide access to additional attributes / facts about files
(paths, generally) as well.  Sounds like it would not be too hard to support
access to the basic attributes this way.

I suspect the general response will be PTC, though!  :-)
