the direct translation of what you wrote would be

<xsl:template match="foo[@name='bar'][ancestor::*[@type='general']]">

although I'd probably write that as

<xsl:template match="*[@type='general']//foo[@name='bar']">

@ is attribute:: and you can't use two axese in one step, that should
have been

<xsl:template match="foo[@name='bar' and ancestor::*/@type='general']">

which is equivalent to the first form above.
