ping not working due to unsupported extended file attributes in aufs
You cannot use ping from the command line and receive this error: ping: socket: Operation not permitted
A workaround is running ping from /lib/live/mount/rootfs/filesystem.squashfs/bin/ping google.com
Linking /bin/ping to /lib/live/mount/rootfs/filesystem.squashfs/bin/ping might fix this issue
Tor can not send ICMP packets, but I guess your workaround might be useful for programs that need File Capabilities (Are there any more?) to function until tails switches to overlayfs.
Tor can not send ICMP packets
Indeed, regardless of extended file attributes,
ping google.com is not going to work anyway.
So I'd like us to take a step back: what user-facing problem are we trying to solve here?
