See attached patch.

NOTE:

During testing I noticed that without
nfsacl-cache-acls-on-the-nfs-client-side.patch, no directories or
devices can be created. It's probably a problem with
nfs_set_default_acl(). I'll have to debug this tomorrow.

Well, everything but the umask is always correct; that is guaranteed by
the server. The initial create sets permissions that may be more
restrictive than necessary, and then the SETACL RPC sets up the final,
correct permissions. I don't believe that a race-free solution is
possible.
