Some NFSv4 servers allow a mode SETATTR to restore ACL permissions
which were removed by a previous mode SETATTR. This allows servers
to handle mode SETATTRs without destroying the information in ACLs.
However, these temporarily masked permissions are not exposed to
clients. This proposal adds an optional new file attribute,
file_masks, which can be used by clients to see these temporarily
The operations of the NFSv4 mode and ACL attributes are unchanged,
but extra information is made available to clients to aid, for
example, in archiving of data without losing permissions information.
