Whether the ACL enable flag is set on a UFS2 filesystem or not, ACLs are not
enabled unless explicitly set in /etc/fstab or specified upon manual mounting.
umount <some_ufs2_slice>
tunefs -a enable <some_ufs2_slice>
mount <some_ufs2_slice>
The filesystem will not, as it should, have ACLs enabled.
Explicitly specifying the acls mount option. But what's the point of having
the superblock flag then?
