Detailed Description

The structure used in the extended attributes to store uncompressed file sizes and the associated time stamp.

In order to store the uncompressed file size of a bzip2 file for later easy retrieval, this structure stores all the necessary information to both store the size and validate its correctness against the compressed file.

Note that we don't attempt any check of endianness or internal validation on this structure. You're assumed to be reading the file system with the same operating system that the extended attribute was written with.
