Hello all,
I am facing a problem when trying to boot linux 2.6.37 on a new

At the end of the boot, it tries to launch /init by executing a sys_execve()

Here is the what it does:

  |-> do_execve()
         |-> prepare_binprm()

In the get_vfs_caps_from_disk(), these is a verification to know if
has been initialized.

In my case, it returns and error value, because this field is not

So I am wondering by who and where this field is initialized?
And what is the aim of getxattr?

Thanks in advance!
