As I said originally, it is a patch which shows the sort of
changes that are needed, but it is untested as I know very
little about Samba & how to go about testing this.

I will see if I can find some time to figure out how to set up
Samba and test this ... I can't promise anything though as I'm
busy on other stuff right now, and Windows machines are quite
scarce around here.

Thanks for pushing this - if some other developer out there can
take a shot at fixing the original patch, I could certainly look
over their new patch and cross-check the XFS quota side of things
