Re: ext3 and acls?

If you need acls on ext3 try the set of patches that I've put together.

It works for kernel version 2.2.19
So far the patches are stable under heavy load.  I still have more tests
to run with quotas enabled, but I'm not anticipating any trouble there.

There's more work to be done for the 2.4.x version of the patch, as it is
non-functional so far.
