Technical Summary

   In many important environments, inheritable NFSv4 ACLs can be
   rendered ineffective by the application of the per-process umask.
   This can be addressed by transmitting the umask and create mode as
   separate pieces of data, allowing the server to make more intelligent
   decisions about the permissions to set on new files.  This document
   proposes a protocol extension which accomplishes that.
