Yes, I agree with you.
In ext4_ xattr_ check_ Entries () simply verifies the length of the 
extended attribute with
ea_inode. If the previous patch is not merged, EXT4_ XATTR_ SIZE_ MAX is 
much larger
than the actual constraint value. Data verification can only be 
postponed until the ea_inode
is read.
So your suggestion is to modify EXT4_ XATTR_ SIZE_ MAX Or defer data 
verification until
the ea_inode is read?
