Well, having used the in-kernel HFS+ filesystem driver before, and found it lacking in a number of areas (like massive corruption under heavy load or when unlinking lots of files) I bought the commercially supported Paragon NTFS&HFS drivers.  

I have not tried extended attribute and acl support, but the Paragon drivers support full read and write on journaled HFS+ filesystems.  It's $40 US, but worth every penny in my book for filesystem compatibility.
