How about including the NFSACL patch from acl.bestbits.at? One reason
for people to move to 2.6 from 2.4 is that they no longer need to patch
the kernel to get ACL support. Unless they want to have ACL support over
NFSv3 that is... NFSACL support is quite an argument for Linux in an existing
Solaris production environments, so i would like to see it included
into the mainstream kernel ASAP (Note: I am not speaking for Andreas and
the other people working on the ACL code!). Including it into -mm would give
it the necessary exposure.

The patch is available in broken up form at:
http://acl.bestbits.at/current/diff/nfsacl-2.6.1-0.8.67.tar.gz

And before somebody mentions NFSv4: This is not (yet) an option for production
environments.
