Hi Bruce,

If 'vfs objects = acl_xattr' parameter is defined in smb.conf, ksmbd store both.
If not, only posix acl will be stored. To avoid translation from posix acl to ntacl from request of client,
ksmbd use ntacl in xattr first.

Hm.. I do not know how to share the code with nfsd at present. Maybe we can discuss it again after upstream ?
Any thought ?
