Shouldn't os.setxattr() errno EEXIST be when "XATTR_CREATE was specified, and the attribute exists already" and errno ENODATA be when "XATTR_REPLACE was specified, and the attribute does not exist."? In the current os module documentation, it's the other way around: "If XATTR_REPLACE is given and the attribute does not exist, EEXISTS will be raised. If XATTR_CREATE is given and the attribute already exists, the attribute will not be created and ENODATA will be raised."... Thanks!

Sorry, ZackerySpytz. I saw PR 25742 first and reviewed and merged it before I saw that you have an earlier PR on this issue.
