retrieve access control list for a vnode
vnode *vp, acl_type_t
type, struct acl
*aclp, struct ucred
*cred, struct thread
This vnode call may be used to retrieve the access control list (ACL) from a file or directory.
Its arguments are:
- The vnode of the file or directory.
- The type of ACL to retrieve.
- A pointer to an ACL structure to receive the ACL data.
- The user credentials to use in authorizing the request.
- The thread requesting the ACL.
The cred pointer may be
NULL to indicate that access control checks are not
to be performed, if possible. This cred setting might be used to allow the
kernel to authorize ACL retrieval that the active process might not be
permitted to do.
The vnode ACL interface defines the syntax, and not semantics, of file and directory ACL interfaces. More information about ACL management in kernel may be found in acl(9).
The vnode will be locked on entry and should remain locked on return.
If the aclp pointer will point to a valid ACL, then zero is returned. Otherwise, an appropriate error code is returned.
