Doing a chmod() sets the file mode, which includes the file permission
bits.  When a file has a richacl, the permissions that the richacl
grants need to be limited to what the new file permission bits allow.

This is done by setting the file masks in the richacl to what the file
permission bits map to.  The richacl access check algorithm takes the
file masks into account, which ensures that the richacl cannot grant too
many permissions.

It is possible to explicitly add permissions to the file masks which go
beyond what the file permission bits can grant (like the
RICHACE_WRITE_ACL permission).  The POSIX.1 standard calls this an
alternate file access control mechanism.  A subsequent chmod() would
ensure that those permissions are disabled again.
