    Description

      From the attr(5) manpage:

             For  this reason, extended user attributes are only allowed for regular
             files and directories,  and  access  to  extended  user  attributes  is
             restricted  to the owner and to users with appropriate capabilities for
             directories with the sticky bit set (see the chmod(1) manual  page  for
             an explanation of Sticky Directories).
