Good point. I assume that's also true for network file systems.

This would essentially argue that for those putting the helper
into the inode read paths is not optional. I'll look into this
later.

Doesn't that need a check for no xattr too? or do you not support
those currently?

Note I added a helper for this in the latest version:
inode_has_no_xattr()
