Hmmm, seems like only very minor changes.

That would be very helpful. I need to catch the point where is Samba 
sending to Windows list of ACLs (e.g. owner user  is john and has rwx, 
owner group is johngroup and has rw-, everyone has r--, adam has rw-, 
managment has rwx) and filter owner group and everyone out of this list 
(so return only owner user john, adam and managment).
