It might be not the nicest one on earth, but it's a
self-contained data structure that does not depend on any
underlying API. So it was a bit of a quick hack. I mean,
it's an array of ACEs, there's not much design space that
you can explore. The one with linked lists (The AIX one?)
was definitely worse from my point of view...

What I'd like to come to eventually is to not pass for
example acl_create_entry through the VFS. I removed that
with the previous attempt, but I was not sure enough that
this actually was a correct implementation, the patch was
quite large. It might return later. It's not such a huge
task once you have done it.
