rsync 3.x ACL / XATTR support for Solaris 10 / ZFS

Looking at the current code in CVS, it appears that rsync does not 
currently support ACLs or XATTRs for Solaris ZFS filesystems (at least 
not completely - I'm not sure how UFS/ZFS auto ACL format conversion 
works). It shouldn't be too hard to add support, especially as ZFS now 
uses NFSv4 ACLs. I'm glad to do the coding and testing, but I wanted to 
make sure that someone wasn't already so doing before I got started.
