    Why are you adding a POSIX-ACL specific function to the nfs_xdr
    functions? It is never going to be used for either NFSv2 or NFSv4.

    I suggest you rather do the same thing we're doing for the NFSv4 acls,
    and provide an nfsv3-specific struct inode_operations that points to
    nfsv3-specific {get,set,list}xattr functions.
