Ah, the patch was for testing, not resting ... how could I get that mixed up.

I've applied your patch to the latest master branch, made it compile
again, and fixed a few obvious problems. The results I get with
smbcacls look reasonable now.

The code is here: richacl

I've used the following smb.conf:
comment = Richacl directory
path = /mnt/ext4
vfs objects = richacl
writeable = yes
browseable = yes

Is there a particular reason why you didn't make vfs_richacl a
dynamically loadable module?
