    Subject[PATCH -V8 00/26] New ACL format for better NFSv4 acl interoperability

    The following set of patches implements VFS and ext4 changes needed to implement
    a new acl model for linux. Rich ACLs are an implementation of NFSv4 ACLs,
    extended by file masks to fit into the standard POSIX file permission model.
    They are designed to work seamlessly locally as well as across the NFSv4 and
    CIFS/SMB2 network file system protocols.

    A user-space utility for displaying and changing richacls is available at [4]
    (a number of examples can be found at

    [4] git:// master

    To test richacl on ext4 use tune2fs -O richacl to enable richacl feature and mount
    the file system using -o acl mount option.

    More details regarding richacl can be found at

    Changes from v7:
    a) Update patches based on review comments.
    b) Add acked-by:
    c) Change the richacl xattr format based on review feedback.

    git repository With all the patches can be found at
    git:// richacl

    IMHO the patches are ready to be merged upstream. How do we push these changes
    to Linus tree ? Andrew, Viro, any comment on how we can get this merged upstream ?
