Does Linux have local API's to manipulate mounted NFSv4 ACLs ?

Samba has VFS modules to cope with mapping Windows ACLs onto
NFSv4 ACLs but currently they only work on AIX, Linux with IBM's
gpfs and Solaris right now.

If you can point me a docs showing the library APIs for Linux
to allow programatic manipulation of NFSv4 ACLs then I can
make it work on Linux too.
