DESCRIPTION
     The acl_copy_entry() function copies the contents of the ACL entry indicated by the src_d

     dest_d descriptors may refer to entries in different ACLs.

     returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_copy_entry() function returns -1 and sets
     errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]		The argument src_d or dest_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry.

			The arguments src_d and dest_d reference the same ACL entry.
