Although it has not been tested thoroughly yet, I have tried using
vfs_acl_xattr with vfs_glusterfs and it worked for me at the basic level.
I have not tested with AD though.

My test just had a windows client connect to a samba server sharing a
gluster volume using the vfs plugin and setting NT ACLs on files.

I was able to set full control and other attributes on the files.
Do try and let us know how it goes.
