The acl_delete_def_file() function deletes a default ACL from the
directory whose pathname is pointed to by the argument path_p.
The effective user ID of the process must match the owner of the file
or directory or the process must have the CAP_FOWNER capability for the
request to succeed.
If the argument path_p is not a directory, then the function fails. It
is no error if the directory whose pathname is pointed to by the argu‐
ment path_p does not have a default ACL.
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_delete_def_file()
function returns the value -1 and and sets errno to the corresponding
[EINVAL] The file referred to by path_p is not a directory.
[ENOTSUP] The file system on which the file identified by
path_p is located does not support ACLs, or ACLs are
[EPERM] The process does not have appropriate privilege to
perform the operation to delete the default ACL.
[EROFS] This function requires modification of a file system
which is currently read-only.
