Add Posix ACL support to WSL and for drvfs mounts derive them from Windows ACL

Add Posix ACL support to WSL and for drvfs mounts derive them from Windows ACL. It is possible to map Posix ACLs to Windows ACLs with some limitations. That would greatly enhance interoperability between windows applications and wsl applications. Using metadata to save posix permissions on drvfs mounts greatly reduces interoperability, since windows applications are not aware of posix permissions saved as metadata.
