Subject[PATCH 2/2] cgroupfs: Support user xattrs
Date
This patch turns on xattr support for cgroupfs. This is useful for
letting non-root owners of delegated subtrees attach metadata to
cgroups.

One use case is for subtree owners to tell a userspace out of memory
killer to bias away from killing specific subtrees.

Tests:

[/sys/fs/cgroup]# for i in $(seq 0 130); \
do setfattr workload.slice -n user.name$i -v wow; done
setfattr: workload.slice: No space left on device
setfattr: workload.slice: No space left on device
setfattr: workload.slice: No space left on device

[/sys/fs/cgroup]# for i in $(seq 0 130); \
do setfattr workload.slice --remove user.name$i; done
setfattr: workload.slice: No such attribute
setfattr: workload.slice: No such attribute
setfattr: workload.slice: No such attribute

[/sys/fs/cgroup]# for i in $(seq 0 130); \
do setfattr workload.slice -n user.name$i -v wow; done
setfattr: workload.slice: No space left on device
setfattr: workload.slice: No space left on device
setfattr: workload.slice: No space left on device

`seq 0 130` is inclusive, and 131 - 128 = 3, which is the number of
errors we expect to see.
