Okay, I will look at that code little bit mode.

UBIFS create_xattr() (fs/ubifs/xattr.c) calls ubifs_new_inode() so it
can get tricky if I want to create xattr in ubifs_new_inode().

Also noticed that UBIFS doesn't d_instantiate() inode entry created to
hold extended attribute, not certain if that would be an issue.

I will look how other fs manage xattrs, I certainly don't want to
modify how UBIFS manages extended attributes.
