Hi List,

As part of our NAS product, we are using Samba on top of Symantec File System (VxFS).
We are making use of acl_xattr module to interpret and store NTACLs.
Presently VxFS does not support security namespace for named attrs thus, NTACLs have to be stored under user.NTACL.

Its use will be vfs objects = acl_xattr  vxfs

Please find attached patch which adds new module for VxFS which can handle this.
Also we are planning few more additions to this module with respect to NTACL to POSIX ACL handling which I will post once ready.

This patch applies to Samba 3.6.23. Please let me know reviews/comments.

Thanks and Regards
Abhidnya Joshi
