git history shows that it was deliberately placed after the fs specific
xattr handlers have been called so individual filesystems don't need to
be aware of id mappings to make maintenance easier. Same goes for vfs
capabilities. Moving this down into individual filesystem seems like a
maintenance nightmare where now each individual filesystem will have to
remember to fixup their ids. For namespaced vfs caps which are handled
at the same level in setxattr() it will also mean breaking backwards
compatible translation from non-namespaced vfs caps aware userspace to
namespaced vfs-caps aware kernels.
