Problem during /init execve

Hello all,

What is the purpose of the inode->i_op->getxattr method?

During the boot of linux-2.6.37 on a new architecture, it crashes in the
get_vfs_caps_from_disk() function because of the following security check,
(in my case, this field is ot initialized).

if (!inode || !inode->i_op->getxattr)
          return -ENODATA;

Has anyone seen anything similar before ?

Where is this method initialized?

Thanks in advance
