Subject: NFSD: Call ->set_acl with a NULL ACL structure if no entries

commit aa07c713ecfc0522916f3cd57ac628ea6127c0ec upstream.

After setting ACL for directory, I got two problems that caused
by the cached zero-length default posix acl.

This patch make sure nfsd4_set_nfs4_acl calls ->set_acl
with a NULL ACL structure if there are no entries.

Thanks for Christoph Hellwig's advice.

First problem:
............ hang ...........

Second problem:
