SubjectRe: [PATCH 8/8] jffs2/jfs/xfs: switch over to 'check_acl' rather than 'permission()'
The split of these patches is a bit odd, either do all in one patch or
one patch per filesystem instead of those groups.

That beeing said if we go down this way I would prefer if we go
down all the way, that is convert the remaining few filesystems that
pass a check_acl argument to generic_permission (btrfs, gfs2, ocfs2)
and just kill off that argument.

After that there is another step we can easily go: as we now cache the
ACLs in the generic inode instead of the per-fs one we can move the
get_cached_acl call to your acl_permission_check helper (for gfs2/ocfs2
that don't cache ACLs it will always fail), and not call out to the fs
for the fast path at all.
