The perms are first applied as normal, i.e., ugo/rwx, then the extended acls
are added on as an additional qualifying condition.

u::rwx,g::rwx,o::r-x,u:user1:r--,u:user2:---,u:user3:rw-,m::rwx
\__________________/ \_________________________________/
  'normal' perms              'extended perms'

so... 'normal' perms would apply to everyone except user1, user2, and user3. 
These users would get the perms shown in the 'extended perms'
