    Description

      Currently, FSPermissionChecker#checkOwner throws an AccessControlException with a simple "Permission denied" message.

      When users try to set an ACL without ownership permissions, they'll see something like:

      [schu@hdfs-vanilla-1 hadoop]$ hdfs dfs -setfacl -m user:schu:--- /tmp
      setfacl: Permission denied
      

      It'd be helpful if the message had an explanation why the permission was denied to avoid confusion for users who aren't familiar with permissions.
