Commit Message

Andreas Gruenbacher Dec. 2, 2015, 1:44 p.m. UTC
Add an additional "name" field to struct xattr_handler.  When the name
is set, the handler matches attributes with exactly that name.  When the
prefix is set instead, the handler matches attributes with the given
prefix and with a non-empty suffix.

This patch should avoid bugs like the one fixed in commit c361016a in
the future.
