Sorry, but I can't really speak authoritatively on the state
of NFSv4 in Linux. I would expect OpenSolaris to export
NFSv4 ACLs fine via the protocol (haven't checked though).
Whether you can make use of those via the Linux NFS client
-- no idea.

Regarding cifsfs being too slow, you should really contact
Steve French and Jeff Layton about what workload is too
slow. In the implementation, there's well-known vast room of
improvement that is fiddly to implement. Maybe you can be of
help there?
