Why are you doing a strncpy here? strcpy() isn't going to copy more
than strlen(xattr->name) + 1 bytes, and you know buffer is large
enough to hold that because of the previous if (size < used) check?
If you assigned the first strlen(xattr->name) + 1 to a temporary
variable, you could use memcpy here, and avoid the 3 repeated
strlen(xattr->name) calls.
