    posix: add ACL translation for the GF_POSIX_ACL_*_KEY xattr

    Adding support for two virtual extended attributes that are used for
    converting a binary POSIX ACL to a POSIX.1e long ACL text format. This
    makes it possible to transfer the ACL over the network to a different OS
    which can convert the POSIX.1e text format to its native structures.

    The following xattrs are sent over RPC in SETXATTR/GETXATTR procedures,
    and contain the POSIX.1e long ACL text format:

    - glusterfs.posix.acl: maps to ACL_TYPE_ACCESS
    - glusterfs.posix.default_acl: maps to ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT

    acl_from_text() (from libacl) converts the text format into an acl_t
    structure. This structure is then used by acl_set_file() to set the ACL
    in the filesystem.

    libacl-devel is needed for linking against libacl, so it has been added
    to the BuildRequires in the .spec.

    NetBSD does not support POSIX ACLs. Trying to get/set POSIX ACLs on a
    storage server running NetBSD, an error will be returned with errno set
    to ENOTSUP. Faking support, but not enforcing ACLs seems wrong to me.
