[PATCH] man: add examples to setfattr.1

From: Achilles Gaikwad
Subject: [PATCH] man: add examples to setfattr.1
Date: Thu, 6 Feb 2020 10:09:38 +0530

The current man page for setfattr does not state that the user needs to
add the prefix "user." With the help of examples we demonstrate that the
user needs to add a namespace as prefix.
