An object would be preferable. Allow file system specific
implementations to return whatever type make most sense for them.
Less optimally make it a byte array.
But whatever you do, ByteBuffer does not belong here. Most use cases for
working with file system attributes will not need or want to use
ByteBuffers. This coupling needs to be broken.
