Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-6373) Remove support for extended attributes on symlinks
Date Mon, 12 May 2014 20:38:15 GMT
Andrew Wang created HDFS-6373:
---------------------------------

             Summary: Remove support for extended attributes on symlinks
                 Key: HDFS-6373
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6373
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Andrew Wang


Looking in the Linux source code, we see the following:

http://lxr.linux.no/linux+v3.14.3/fs/xattr.c

{code}
  60        /*
  61         * In the user.* namespace, only regular files and directories can have
  62         * extended attributes. For sticky directories, only the owner and
  63         * privileged users can write attributes.
  64         */
{code}

We should consider removing {{XAttrFeature}} from {{INodeSymlink}}.
