Unless I misunderstood the code, this one is available for
quite some time: <http://www.olafdietsche.de/linux/accessfs/>
or a newer, self-contained version <http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/1/11/221>

Or you could use a real solution - filesystem capabilities:
<http://www.olafdietsche.de/linux/capability/> and if you don't like
this one :-), there's also an alternative existing here:
<http://www.stanford.edu/~luto/linux-fscap/>

Regards, Olaf.
