NOTE: This function is based on Draft 13 of the POSIX
The acl_create_entry() function creates a new ACL entry in
the ACL pointed to by the acl_p argument. If there is
insufficient space in the ACL for creating a new entry,
then additional memory is allocated.
The components of the new ACL entry are initialized as
follows: The ACL tag type component does not contain a
possible ACL tag type The tag qualifier component does not
refer to any possible user ID or group ID The set of permissions
does not have any permissions specified.
Upon successful completion, the acl_create_entry() function
returns the descriptor for the new entry. Otherwise,
a value of NULL is returned, and errno is set to indicate
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_create_entry()
function sets errno to the corresponding
value: The acl_p argument does not refer to a valid ACL.
The new ACL entry requires more memory than the system is
able to provide.
