Copy (F5) should keep xattrs

When copying files with extended attributes, the cp command needs the -a switch to keep the xattrs. MC copy by default also keeps the normal attributes (permissions, modification time), but there’s no option to have it also keep extended attributes.

(apart from the lack of display/modification of said extended attributes, which could also be added, but that’s another story)
