I now merged patches 1-3/4, but not this one. Setting/unsetting
attributes seems to be generally useful, so the rest stands on its
own. The reason I held back with the last patch is that setting of the
attributes through tmpfiles should be added together with the removal
of the same functionality from journald. But there are some details to
Setting +C on /var/log/journal/%m has smaller scope than the code in
journal-file.c now. For example it does not cover files opened by
systemd-journal-remote. Having the files no-cow is just as useful for those,
but it's not entirely clear how to support it in the new scheme.
