I updated the patch and will push the change to korg after running some

The userspace change did result in a different output for the below ex:

richacl --set 'flags:a 101:w::deny 101:rw::allow 101:w:a:deny 101:rw:a:allow' f

this now gives

/mnt/d# richacl --get --numeric f
that 'w' in rw::allow is redundant, because we have a deny entry before.
