Not reletad to this patch but ntfs_get_wsl_perm() seems quite bug
because in there ntfs_get_ea use is not checked at all.

Also ntfs_getxattr() should probably send errno if ntfs_get_ea() is 0.

ntfs_get_ea() will return 0 if no info and this can happend quite
easily in my eyes. 

Here's snippets

ntfs_read_ea()
{
	attr_info =
		ni_find_attr(ni, NULL, &le, ATTR_EA_INFO, NULL, 0, NULL, NULL);
	attr_ea =
		ni_find_attr(ni, attr_info, &le, ATTR_EA, NULL, 0, NULL, NULL);

	if (!attr_ea || !attr_info)
		return 0;	
}

ntfs_get_ea()
{
	len = 0;
	err = ntfs_read_ea(ni, &ea_all, 0, &info);
	if (err)
		goto out;
	if (!info)
		goto out;
out:
	return err ? err : len;
}

So now if err (size) is 0 it will try to get acl. Didn't you just say
that you want to return PTR_ERR(-EINVAL)?

So overall good finding but maybe more work is needed with this one.
