Hi Linus,

Can you pull these two fixes to the afs filesystem please?

 (1) Fix an oops in AFS that can be triggered by accessing one of the
     afs.yfs.* xattrs against an OpenAFS server - for instance by "cp
     -a"[1], "rsync -X" or getfattr[2].  These try and copy all of the

     cp and rsync should pay attention to the list in /etc/xattr.conf, but
     cp doesn't on Ubuntu and rsync doesn't seem to on Ubuntu or Fedora.
     xattr.conf has been modified upstream[3], and a new version has just
     been cut that includes it.  I've logged a bug against rsync for the
     problem there[4].

 (2) Stop listing "afs.*" xattrs[6], particularly ACL ones[8] so that they
     don't confuse cp and rsync.  This removes them from the list returned
     by listxattr(), but they're still available to get/set.

ver #2:
 - Hide all of the afs.* xattrs, not just the ACL ones[7].
