 We use Legato networker. I assume Networker 6 will not backup XFS
extended attributes as until now Linux hasn't really had them.

 However IRIX is a supported OS for Networker. What I need is for some
one at SGI to lean on networker to port the XFS bits of the IRIX client
to Linux, I can then get the update through our usual software maintence
channels...

 I assume under Irix , networker backs up the EAs.
