Subject: [PATCH v2] chattr/lsattr: update obsolete attribute support

* Remove description of and printing of h, which was never visible to
  clients of the EXT4_IOC_GETFLAGS ioctl, including chattr and lsattr.

* Remove descriptions of X and Z, whose support was removed in
  4a05268cf86f713 (Remove compression support).

* Update a brief description of E, whose meaning was changed in
  22f22ab1d2bc5ae (Reserve the codepoints for the new INCOMPAT
  feature ENCRYPT).

* Add P to symbolic mode format string.

v2: Remove h flag support.

The one line summary for v1 was "chattr: update man page attribute
descriptions." The additions to the patch made that summary somewhat
inaccurate. Apologies for any confusion.
