I'm new to this project and I'd love to work on this.

I applied the patch mentioned in the above conversation to the current source
code. I ran the 'cp' tests and all 11 of them succeeded. I was going to start
writing tests for verifying that extended attributes are copied but I can't
seem to find any shell commands that interact with them. I've read some of the
documentation and it seems that you can use the 'zfs' command to figure out if
a file system has extended attributes turned on but it doesn't allow you to set
them on a per file basis.

Does anyone have any advice on what I should be using?
