           Summary: extattr_namespace_to_string in libutil.h but not in
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New

I've been porting Burp (a backup program) to FreeBSD.

Looking at the various configure checks for detecting extended attribute
support, I noticed that the declarations for extattr_namespace_to_string and
extattr_string_to_namespace are in libutil.h. The functions themselves moved to
libc from libutil about 10 years ago.

NetBSD has these prototypes in sys/extattr.h. Would it make sense to move them
there as well?
