Ah, that's easily explained.  lsattr has to open the file with read
perms to be allowed to call ioctl on the file descriptor:

  fd = open (filename, O_RDONLY);
  ioctl (fd, FS_IOC_GETFLAGS, &flags);
  close (fd);

But that's disallowed for certain files.  pagefile.sys, for instance,
always results in a sharing violation when trying to open it.

cmd's dir as well as attrib don't even try to open the file.  Both
open the directory and print the attributes from the directory
information.

Nothing I can do about for now.  We could add another ioctl at
one point which operates on the parent dir, kind of like:

  fd_dir = open (parent_dir, O_RDONLY);
  ioctl (fd_dir, FS_IOC_GETFLAGS_FILE, filename, &flags);
  close (fd_dir)

Patches welcome.
