Subject[PATCH -V3 08/17] richacl: Permission check algorithm
Date
From: Andreas Gruenbacher <agruen@suse.de>

As in the standard POSIX file permission model, each process is the
owner, group, or other file class. A process is

- in the owner file class if it owns the file,
- in the group file class if it is in the file's owning group or it
matches any of the user or group entries, and
- in the other file class otherwise.

Each file class is associated with a file mask.

A richacl grants a requested access if the NFSv4 acl in the richacl
grants the requested permissions (according to the NFSv4 permission
check algorithm) and the file mask that applies to the process includes
the requested permissions.
