initialize ACL working storage
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
function allocates and initializes the working storage for an ACL of at
least count ACL entries. The ACL created initially
contains no ACL entries. A pointer to the working storage is returned.
This function may cause memory to be allocated.
The caller should free any releasable memory, when the new ACL is no longer
required, by calling acl_free(3) with the
(void*)acl_t returned by
as an argument.
On success, this function returns a pointer to the working
storage. On error, a value of
returned, and errno is set appropriately.
If any of the following conditions occur, the
acl_init() function returns a value of
(acl_t)NULL and sets errno to
the corresponding value:
