We have tools available through the nfs4-acl-tools package (this is on CentOS 6, for example) that offer me the ability to read and set the ACLs on the volume. I figure at some level, someone must have had an API because these tools aren't specific to the underlying filesystem as this could really be offered from anything.

make sure that you dont run in a open files limit with ntfs4 acl on
netapp ( i think this was in the orig question ) , there may be a max of
32000 per head ( if exist ) or 64000 in summa
