From: Rock Lee <rockdotlee at gmail.com>

Just print warning message when xattr value size is bigger than the
buffer size. There is a situation that other modules, like overlayfs,
try to get xattr value with a small buffer, if they get -ERANGE, they
will try again with the proper buffer size. No need to report a error
message, warning message is enough.
