I'm looking at 3.2. And -- I never suggested to move the NT
acls to kernel space.

What I have suggested and which I would definitely like to
see as a completely optional separate thing is doing *all*
acl checks in user space. This would make the become_root()
calls to open the tdb files unnecessary, because all files
would belong to some Samba user or even root, Samba would
always run as root. Again: This would be a non-default
special way of running Samba.
