Subject[PATCH -V7 16/26] richacl: Update the file masks in chmod()
Date
From: Andreas Gruenbacher <agruen@kernel.org>

Doing a chmod() sets the file mode, which includes the file permission
bits. When a file has a richacl, the permissions that the richacl
grants need to be limited to what the new file permission bits allow.

This is done by setting the file masks in the richacl to what the file
permission bits map to. The richacl access check algorithm takes the
file masks into account, which ensures that the richacl cannot grant too
many permissions.

It is possible to explicitly add permissions to the file masks which go
beyond what the file permission bits can grant (like the ACE4_WRITE_ACL
permission). The POSIX.1 standard calls this an alternate file access
control mechanism. A subsequent chmod() would ensure that those
permissions are disabled again.
