Thanks for these patches but I can't apply them as you've
added a (C) Sun Microsystems to them.

The Samba Team has a policy (based on past experiences) that
we don't accept any patches with corporate copyright, only
those with individual copyright. This prevents any corporate
control over the codebase.

If you're willing to resubmit these patches with your own
personal copyright notice on them rather than Sun then I'll
reconsider them.
