If you pull patches licensed under the GPLv3 into "GPLv2 or later", you need
to distribute the resulting code under the GPLv3. So doing this will get you
nothing that just using Samba 3.2.x won't give you as well.
The only difference is when the author of a patch explicitly allows
backporting the patch to GPLv2 code, as we usually do with security and bug
Hope this helps,
