Adding support for xattrs into gnulib.

I'd like to ask you whether it would be possible to add support of
extended file system attributes into Gnulib code base.  The reason is that
I would like to add support for extended attributes into upstream GNU tar.

I'm proposing two patches.

1) First is adding basic xattrs support into gnulib - module 'xattr'.
This should guarantee that (even if they are just stubs) basic
setxattr/getxattr/listxattr/etc methods always exist.

2) Second patch adds module 'xattr-at' that depends on 'xattr'.  This
module implements *at() wrappers for extended attributes calls.

This is my first gnulib proposal - please, forgive me if I made any
mistake.  I tried inspire with selinux-at module and others as much as
possible.  But I'll be happy to repair any possible problem.
