There's a patch for ext3 now, based on an -ac tree, from the
same folk who do the ext2 version (http://acl.bestbits.at/).

The IBM guys tell me there is code in their tree to support
extended attributes and ACLs, but my understanding is that at
this stage it is not compiled in. There would be some work
to get it to tie in with whatever interface eventually gets
put into the kernel of course... I guess they're waiting to
see how that pans out before working on that area.
