Take a look in cmd/attr/libattr/attr.c 

In the  _attr_multif() function, there is a call to attrctl, the
last argument is 1, I suspect it should be count instead.

        if (attrctl(obj, type, ops, 1) < 0) {
                error = -1;
                goto free_mem;


        if (attrctl(obj, type, ops, count) < 0) {
                error = -1;
                goto free_mem;

Just a guess and I have not tried it.

So just what is HP doing with an SGI filesystem and what do we get in
return ;-)
