Hi,

this patch lacks basic formatting requirements, this has been
extensively documented eg. here https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Developer's_FAQ .

Besides the formalities, I'm missing what's the change rationale. It
deals with a strange case when the xattr name length is 0, which is
unexpected and should not be handled silently. Next I'm not sure if
bailing out of the function is right, there are more items to process.
Best if we could skip the damaged ones but still continue.
