Version     : 0.3.3

Summary     : The nfs4 ACL tools
Description :

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

      allow parsing ACEs with empty masks            After upgrading from 0.3.2
to 0.3.3 to fix some segfaulting       issues we had, 0.3.3 now rejects ACEs
that have empty mask       fields.  This is because the function
parse_alloc_fields       checks whether the three strings are zero length.
Having a       zero length "type" or "who" definitely doesn't make sense,
but having an empty mask is entirely possible.  It's      allowed in the old
versions and the ZFS back-end in our       setup allows them too.  Even
nfs4_getfacl prints them out,       producing the frustrating situation where
nfs4_getfacl can       produce ACLs that you can't apply with nfs4_setfacl.
This patch modifies the function to not check if the       mask is an empty
string.
