Should be easy enough to deal with: instead of one large file, use one companion file per source file, perhaps something like filename..xattrs (suggesting double dots to make it less likely to conflict with a "real" file.) No leading dot, as it makes it more likely that archivers will sort them before the file proper.
This version of the patch was changed from the previous one exactly to deal with this case --
it allows for the bootloader to load multiple initramfs archives, each
with its own .xattr-list file, and to have that work properly.
Could you elaborate on the issue that you see?
