[PATCH 0/1] Fix facl on files opened with O_PATH

I'm not sure if this patch is right.  Should facl fail on all commands
or just on SETACL?  If the command is GETACL, for example, should this
fail like fgetxattr(2) or should it succeed like fstat(2)?

Cygwin may be the only platform that supports both facl(2) and O_PATH,
so I guess we're on our own here.
