Subject: [PATCH -next 4/6] ext4: allocate extended attribute value in vmalloc area

From: Ye Bin <yebin10@...wei.com>

Now, extended attribute value maxium length is 64K. The memory requested here
does not need continuous physical addresses, so it is appropriate to use
kvmalloc to request memory. At the same time, it can also cope with the
situation that the extension attribute will become longer in the future.
