I used the --fake-super option to try a copy that is otherwise impossible on
linux (since I don't have access to solaris) -- an ACL that has a mask that
doesn't match the group number.  Rsync duplicated the values correctly (from
xattr value to xattr value).

So, this makes me wonder if setting the mode changes the mask on Solaris.  For
example, if you do this:

setfacl -m m:r foo
chmod 0 foo
getfacl foo

Does the mask get reset?
