[PATCH] Don't let s3fs provision without posix ACL support

Just a quick heads-up:  I've pushed some patches to my master-devel to
add python bindings in to our s3 vfs layer, just to test out ACL

The idea is, much like the provision-time check for xattr support, that
this will ensure we have system ACL support before we enable s3fs.

The reason for this is that s3fs does not permit us to operate without
reference to the system ACLs, so we must assert that they are both
present and working, otherwise we cannot do GPOs correctly.

This was inspired by the challenge Ricky Nance had in getting to the ACL
testing he did today.


Let me know if you can think of any improvements in how we test this.
