Subject: [gentoo-dev] RFC: making ebuilds that provide mkfs.* programs include kernel config checks for fcaps (or other xattrs)

1 Hi,
3 As suggested by Wojciech Myrda in bug 659486 [1], it would be helpful if
4 sys-fs/e2fsprogs would use the linux-info eclass to warn if the kernel
5 configuration doesn't include CONFIG_EXT4_FS_SECURITY=y when the user
6 has expressed a desire to use file capabilities. This idea can be
7 extended to any ebuild that provides an mkfs.* program. Thoughts?
