With a CentOS 5 server and a CentOS 5 client, I've yet to manage to get it
play nicely for long periods without deciding that I'm evil.  Sometimes it
works fine, then a reboot or a minor tinker that I'm sure shouldn't affect
anything will leave it refusing to mount with Operation not permitted.  Or
it'll let me mount it as root, but as soon as I use it with a kerberos ticket
will have a big long pause before deciding it doesn't like me.  Client works
fine against an EMC box, and I've had the server working before I started
using Active Directory.

nfs4-acl-tools-0.3.3-1.el5, standard in CentOS.  That not do what you need?
