What's the deal with proto.h these days and linking a VFS module after exposing init_stat_ex_from_stat

Hi folks,

I modified lib/system.c to change init_stat_ex_from_stat to be
non-static, but that did not allow us to access it from within the
VFS, however, I see that other VFS modules do access symbols from
within Samba.

Looking further I noticed that init_stat_ex_from_stat was not in
proto.h and proto.h contains a comment about it being frozen in 2008.

Is there another mechanism for exposing these symbols or do I have to
modify proto.h and commit it to git?
