Quick look at the source(lib/sysacls.c) shows:
int sys_acl_get_perm( SMB_ACL_PERMSET_T permset, SMB_ACL_PERM_T perm)
* Required for TrustedBSD-based ACL implementations where
* non-POSIX.1e functions are denoted by a _np (non-portable)
return acl_get_perm_np(permset, perm);
return acl_get_perm(permset, perm);
Basically it looks to me like acl_get_perm_np is the TrustedBSD only way
to get the ACL's of a resource.
