How to require specific filesystem features?

I'd like to add tests to some of my packages which depend on file-system
specific features - more precisely, extended attributes and ACLs

Since I can't require this via feature tags, I guess the solution would
be to require root, and create a loopback filesystem? Making the tests
just be skipped if they don't find ACLs/xattrs is another option, but
then I can't rely on test pass output…

Any other ideas?

thanks! (please keep me CCed)
