Suppose that directory A, with its layout as its extended attributes, has a
sub-directory B and there is a file C in directory B.

now the location of file C depends on the layout of A or B? In other word,
could i find file C from directory A's extended attributes?

does a root directory's extended attributes (layout) contains the location
of files under it and its subdirectories,sub-sub-directories...?
