Interesting, the file contents between the one in the snapshot dir for
today and the original file in the dir are the same (md5sum), stat shows
all the same except for the access times, inode #'s are the same, getfacl &
mmgetacl show the same output, possibly some other metadata is different,
maybe in extended attributes where the vfs_acl_xattr stores stuff.
