Description Ondrej 2017-01-26 09:07:53 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently, when invoking nfs4_setfacl -R -a, the command bails out with error:
"An error occurred during recursive file tree walk."
Usually if there is a permission problem somewhere in the directory tree.
The command should be:
1. More verbose saying where problem occurred
2. Skip and Continue operation (much like chmod, chown does)
