Does SAMBA or other CIFS servers running on AIX store the DOS attributes 
as extended attributes? I'm just wondering if the DOS file attribute 
view makes sense or not.

I suspect you will need to update a number of tests to (like 
FileSystem/ and Files/ to ensure that this 
new code is exercised by the tests.

A minor comment but we usually use 4-space indentation in the library 
native code.
