Subject[patch 8/13] Add noacl nfs mount option
With the noacl mount option, nfs clients stop using the ACCESS RPC
which they usually use to get an access decision from the server.
Instead, they make the decision based on the file ownership and
file mode permission bits.

Security-wise using this option can lead to illicit read access to data
cached locally on the client if the server uses POSIX ACLs. Local
access decisions are correct as long as the server does not support
POSIX access control lists.

This approach was discussed with Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@fys.uio.no>
and Olaf Kirch <okir@suse.de>. Requires a patch to mount (util-linux).
