Vfs_afsacl.c is probably not the right sample to work from.
I think you should much rather look at the vfs_gpfs.c and
vfs_aixacl2.c. I would *very* much like to avoid Solaris
doing the ACL mapping different from the other NFSv4 acl
implementations out there.

Better show us what you have as soon as possible. Doing the
complete mapping on your own without using the mappings in
nfs4_acls.c might not be the best idea.

If you have issues with nfs4_acls.c please raise them here.
