These are the changes I expect,
- Do all the changes (or similar changes) in 10186 for the fuse
xlator, except in the server xlator.
- Do the required changes in the server auth code to support sub-directory acls.
In addition, we'd need to check for parts in the client side graph
which expect the root-gfid to be null, and fix those to handle a
proper gfid for root.
Since this feature is mainly targetted for a cloud, multi-tenant use
case, I expect access-control to be a very important requirement.
