The node doesn't "belong to the user"; the filesystem does not know or
care what access permissions are there in the upper-level filesystem.
It is in *that* filesystem which the user is marked the owner; not in
the running trivfs filesystem.

So you need to ask the upper level filesystem for it: since you are the
owner of the upper-level node, you can call file_getcontrol on the
upper-level node.
