Prior to this update, the setfacl.1 man page was not intelligible in that it did not state that removing a non-existent ACL entry is not considered to be an error. With this update, the setfacl.1 man page has been updated so that its content is now intelligible and exactly specifies the aforementioned behavior with regard to removing a non-existent ACL entry.
