The chattr manpage has this to say about immutable files:

"A file with the 'i' attribute cannot be modified: it cannot be deleted
or renamed, no link can be created to this file, most of the file's
metadata can not be modified, and the file can not be opened in write
mode."

However, we don't actually check the immutable flag in the setattr code,
which means that we can update inode flags and project ids and extent
size hints on supposedly immutable files.  Therefore, reject setflags
and fssetxattr calls on an immutable file if the file is immutable and
will remain that way.

I would like to reject this for the sheer effort on my eyes, but
I'll try harder to rationalize.

How about memcmp(fa, old_fa, offsetof(struct fsxattr, fsx_pad))?

Would be more robust to future struct fsxattr changes and generally
more easy on the eyes.

Sure, there is the possibility of userspace passing uninitialized
fsx_extsize/fsx_cowextsize without setting the flag, but is that
a real concern for the very few tools that are used to chattr?
Those tools, when asked to set an attribute, will first get
struct fsxattr from fs, then change the requested attr and set the
fsxattr struct. So IMO the chances of this causing any regression
or unexpected behavior are ridiculously low.

Thanks,
Amir.
