What happens when ACLs are present on the source filesystem? It looks
like listxattr will include the "system.xxx" attributes used by acls,
and then the destination side will try to set them using setxattr, but
this will fail because only "user.xxx" attributes can be set with
But I could be wrong in a number of places, because I'm not sure about
the behavior of setxattr, and I just skimmed the patch quickly.
