I think I found the problem: listxattr() scales badly on NetBSD with
the amount of extended attributes names on the filesystem. I now have 
14954 different extended attribute names, 14910 being of the form

I see news about trusted.gfid2path in 

This exlains why I got hurt when upgrading to 3.12.2.

What happens if I remove the trusted.gfid2path.* attributes? Are
they just re-created?

Some hint on how to disable the feature?
