It does work, but only if the kernel you're running supports it and if your
reiserfs volume is suitable.
A reiserfs v3.5 volume doesn't support it.
For a reiserfs v3.6 volume to support it, it has to be made with a mkreiserfs
which knows about it or you can make a existing volume suitable by running
reiserfsck --clean-attributes
IIRC you only can run that on a unmounted device.
Ofcourse you also need reiserfs utilities which supports it.
And you need to mount your reiserfs volume with the option attrs, else you can
set the attrs but they won't have any effect.
