But although the tmpfs framework for xattrs is general, the validation
function only permits XATTR_SECURITY_PREFIX and XATTR_TRUSTED_PREFIX.

Yes, it would be very necessary to impose size limits if tmpfs went
beyond those to permit XATTR_USER_PREFIX - which the cgroupfs patch
under discussion does permit.
