    I'd be much happier if the ACL interface moved into the VFS layer, and up
    to individual file systems to support/not support ACL's. This way the
    implementation would become isolated from the kernel support, allowing a
    common set of user utilities, and user/OS interface.

    random thoghts on, don't take too seriously:
    The VFS interface shouldn't need much over a "get_next_ACL" call, providing
    the inode number and ACL index.
