Same reason as the past few releases: so that people who set up their
system with a kernel with the ACL patches will have a system that
Just Works.

But now there's one thing that's changed; the ACL patches no longer
destabilize the system under load; we finally found and fixed that
bug while working on RHEL3.  For this release, it changed to a pure
matter of resources; if we'd had more time available, we would have
put the ACL patches into FC1, but ACLs will certainly be in FC2.
