Subject[PATCH 1/3] ovl: check fs features
Date
To allow adding new, backward incompatible features to overlayfs, we need a
way to store the list of features in the overlay. This is done via
"trusted.overlay.features" xattr on the root of the upper layer (or one of
the lower layers, that previously acted as an upper layer). It's a comma
separated list of case sensitive strings.

If an overlay has an unknown feature, mount shall return an error. So
mechanism should only be used for backward incompatible features.

This patch doesn't add any features. If the "trusted.overlay.features"
xattr contains a non-empty list, then return EINVAL error for the mount.

+Filesystem features
+-------------------
+
+Features are enabled via "trusted.overlay.features" xattr on the root of the
+upper layer. E.g. the following command can be used to enable features "foo"
+and "bar" on the overlay:
+
+ setfattr -n "trusted.overlay.features" -v "foo,bar" /upper
+ mount -t overlay overlay -olowerdir=/lower,upperdir=/upper,\
+workdir=/work /merged

+If an overlay has an unknown feature, mount shall return an error.
