I'm on 2.4 and the only ACL docs i have are from XFS which
while consistant with POSIX i'm not using at the moment anyway.
getfacl (1)          - get file access control lists
setfacl (1)          - set file access control lists
chacl (1)            - change the access control list of a file or directory
acl (5)              - Access Control Lists

Where can i find the system calls documented?  They don't
seem to be part of SUSv3 and Andreas Browne's latest
manpages have no ACL related manpages.

Thanks much.  I'm a bit concerned that onone else has spoken
up on this thread?
