The 'len' in V9fsXattr comes from the 'size' argument in setxattr()
function in guest. The setxattr() function's declaration is this:

int setxattr(const char *path, const char *name,
             const void *value, size_t size, int flags);

and 'size' is treated as u64 in linux kernel client code:

int p9_client_xattrcreate(struct p9_fid *fid, const char *name,
                          u64 attr_size, int flags)

So the 'len' should have an type of 'uint64_t'.
The 'copied_len' in V9fsXattr is used to account for copied bytes, it
should also have an type of 'uint64_t'.
