Why are you adding a POSIX-ACL specific function to the nfs_xdr
functions? It is never going to be used for either NFSv2 or NFSv4.

I suggest you rather do the same thing we're doing for the NFSv4 acls,
and provide an nfsv3-specific struct inode_operations that points to
nfsv3-specific {get,set,list}xattr functions.
