Description of problem:
The man page for mount doesn't document the "acl" mount option for
ext2/3 (and maybe others?), even though it mentions a vast amount of
other options. The tune2fs man page does mention it as a mount option.
I tried to setfacl a file and it failed with "Operation not supported".
I guessed from reading the tune2fs man page that "mount -o remount -o
acl $FILESYSTEM" would fix things, and it did, but this should have
been in the mount man page. Probably in the setfacl man page as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man mount | grep -i acl
Actual Results: no output.
Expected Results: acls should have been mentioned.
Fixed in the devel branch.
