SE_DESC_DACL_PROTECTED and "map acl inherit"

Would a patch that sets the SE_DESC_DACL_PROTECTED flag for ACLs when "map
acl inherit" is set to no be accepted?

Some details:  I am testing the migration of our RedHat 9 + samba 2.2.8a
with acl support boxes to Samba 3.0.x.  I have found on large trees that
setting an ACL on the top level and letting the Samba server propagate the
change down the tree will fail.  The client will time out because it
expects this to a fast operation, since a Win2k server with NTFS has
support for the inheritance in the filesystem.  I tried setting "map acl
inherit" to no but Samba still does not set the SE_DESC_DACL_PROTECTED flag
so I still get the timeouts.
