       request to get an extended attribute value

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <liburing.h>

       void io_uring_prep_getxattr(struct io_uring_sqe *sqe,
                                   const char *name,
                                   char *value,
                                   const char *path,
                                   unsigned int len);

       void io_uring_prep_fgetxattr(struct io_uring_sqe *sqe,
                                    int fd,
                                    const char *name,
                                    char *value,
                                    unsigned int len);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The io_uring_prep_getxattr(3) function prepares a request to get
       an extended attribute value. The submission queue entry sqe is
       setup to get the value of the extended attribute identified by
       name and associated with the given path in the filesystem.  The
       len argument specifies the size (in bytes) of value.

       io_uring_prep_fgetxattr(3) is identical to
       io_uring_prep_getxattr(3), only the open file referred to by fd
       is interrogated in place of path.

       This function prepares an async getxattr(2) request. See that man
       page for details.
