The quota support was changed in RH7.1, and needs different
code from RH7.0.

I've updated the quota code in 2.2 CVS to work on RH7.1, but
only with a RH shipped kernel. If you change to a Linus
series kernel then the quota support in Samba will not work.

There's not much I can do about this until Linus merges the
working quota code from the -ac kernel series.
