    ve/xattr: allow to set trusted.xxx for container admin
    Attributes trusted.xxx are used in userspace mechanisms
    which want to keep information in extended attributes to
    which ordinary process has no access.
    We can't check them all, but here is hope that such
    mechanisms on host and in CT won't intersect, because
    most likely we won't find the process from host which
    sets xattrs on container files through /vz/root/<ctid>,
    except the case with trusted.pfcache which is covered in
    previous patch.
