overlayfs fixes for 5.17-rc3
ovl: don't fail copy up if no fileattr support on upper

Christoph Fritz is reporting that failure to copy up fileattr when upper
doesn't support fileattr or xattr results in a regression.

Return success in these failure cases; this reverts overlayfs to the old
behavior.

Add a pr_warn_once() in these cases to still let the user know about the
copy up failures.
