Fix rsync -A on AIX


When use rsync (version 3.1.2) to synchronize ACLs files (rsync -A) on
AIX 7.2(also on AIX 6.1 and AIX 5.3), the errors would occur as

  rsync: change_sacl_perms: sys_acl_get_tag_type(): No such file or directory (2)


  rsync: change_sacl_perms: sys_acl_get_tag_type(): Error 0 (0)

This patch fixes the problem and has been tested on AIX 5.3, 6.1 and 7.2.

It also has been tested to synchronize ACLs files from Linux to AIX.

Fix rsync ACL files on AIX

Because the chmod(2) will disable ACL permission on AIX (see https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/ssw_aix_72/com.ibm.aix.security/access_control_list.htm), so this is a full patch for fixing the problem that can't synchronize ACL files on AIX.
