When filtering xattr list for reading, presence of trusted xattr
results in a security audit log.  However, if there is other content
no errno will be set, and if there isn't, the errno will be -ENODATA
and not -EPERM as is usually associated with a lack of capability.
The check does not block the request to list the xattrs present.

Switch to ns_capable_noaudit to reflect a more appropriate check.
