Umm, so I fail to see the user controlled input here.
udf_add_extendedattr() is called from a single place - udf_update_inode()
- and there all arguments except 'inode' are constant AFAICS. Also it gets
called only when block device or character device inode is created - that
already limits the possible user influence a lot since generally normal
users are not allowed to do that.

If the static checker is concerned that the inode contents is to some extent
user controllable, it is right but:
a) In this particular case udf_add_extendedattr() can get executed only on
freshly created inode so values are controlled by the kernel.
b) Even if in future we'd call udf_add_extendedattr() on inode loaded from
disk we do sanitycheck i_lenEAttr in udf_read_inode() when loading the value
from disk. And that would generally be way before we get to functions adding
extended attributes to the inode...

So overall I don't think this patch is needed.
