RHAS3, here. You don't have to touch the kernel. POSIX ACLs have been
supported for the last couple of hundred years.

You have to make sure Samba is compiled for them. I have to add
"--with-acl-support \" to the srpm spec file that I extract from the
Samba Red Hat srpm and use for 'rpmbuild -bb'. Since I have to build my
own Samba.

Then I have to modify any Samba partition I want to support ACL by
adding ",acl,user_xattr" to column 4 of /etc/fstab for that partition,
and rebooting.

The RH sysadmin docs are clear enough about POSIX ACLs, they could go
deeper, though.
