It would also be good to pursue getting that NFS server fixed.
It is not protocol compliant. That's not the way that the
ACCESS operation is specified to work. The server explicitly
should not return NFS3ERR_ACCESS when access is denied. The
status portion of the return is supposed to indicate the success
or failure of the ACCESS operation itself, not the access
rights that a process may have w.r.t. a file. The bitmask is
to be used for that.
