NFS: nfsacl_{encode,decode} should return signed integer
Clean up. The nfsacl_encode() and nfsacl_decode() functions return negative errno values, and each call site verifies that the returned value is not negative. Change the synopsis of both of these functions to reflect this usage. Document the synopsis and return values.
