The XFS user function,'chacl', which calls acl_set_file, which calls acl_set
(which calls the system call)... works fine.

(spaces and <cr>'s added for clarity below)

[jt at jtsdell xfs_part]$ mkdir test

***This sets 'b'oth the acl and the dacl

[jt at jtsdell xfs_part]$ chacl -b
                         u::rwx,g::r--,g:user1:r-x,m::r--,o::r-- test

***This 'l'ists the acl and the dacl

[jt at jtsdell xfs_part]$ chacl -l test

Is this not the behavior you see in your implementations?

Should I code up a test case at a lower level, or is the 'chacl' test
