No, the result would just be different but not any better; vfs_rename would
become messy.  I've played with this patch some more, and I find the approach
below which splits may_delete into may_delete and may_replace much better.
What do you think?

Thanks,
Andreas

---------- 8< ----------

Richacls distinguish between creating non-directories and directories. To
support that, add an isdir parameter to may_create(). When checking
inode_permission() for create permission, pass in an additional
MAY_CREATE_FILE or MAY_CREATE_DIR mask flag.

Add may_replace() to allow checking for delete and create access when
replacing an existing file in vfs_rename().

This is definitely better than the previous patch.  You can add:
