ACL support for ext3 on 2.4.x



There is now a working patch for ACLs and Extended Attributes on kernel 2.4.x
ext3 available at http://www.moldybread.net/patch/kernel-2.4

The patch applies over 2.4.9-ac3.  The ac patch was used since it includes both
ext3 and the new quota code.

This patch has not yet been throughly tested.

Known problems:
1. Extended attribute sharing does not work on ext3.  Consistently causes
crashes.  This is the same behavior as seen in the patch for 2.2.x, cause still
unknown.
2. File creation is significantly slower in a directory with default ACLs.  Also
seems slower than doing the same with the 2.2.x patch.
