This is a re-post of a message I managed to get to Ferenc Wagner, but
due to my stupidity, didn't get to the mailing list:

Can't really answer your question,
but on the kernel mailing list, There has been some discussion of
whether these attributes should be exposed from mounted fat partitions:
The fat fs maintainer has a patch, and is wondering what to do with it.
(The patch exposes the fat attributes as extended attributes)
See the thread titled "[RFC] ioctl vs xattr for the filesystem specific
Hope this helps
