I will change the return value to -EINVAL and add the WARN_ON_ONCE.
In the next version of the patchset.

I don't think the prototype can be changed to "struct simple_xattrs" as the
security_inode_init_security() function in security/security.c which calls
this is asumming an initxattrs function with following prototype
int (*initxattrs) (struct inode *inode, const struct xattr
*xattr_array, void *fs_data)

This patchset essentially relocates the shmem_initxattrs() function from
mm/shmem.c and uses the relocated function for both tmpfs and mqueuefs.
That inital function didn't attempt to unwind the previous allocations. If the
consensus is to unwind any allocations made by this function I can look
at adding it.
