In Samba4 Wiki:
NOTE about filesystem support

To use the advanced features of Samba4 you need a filesystem that supports both the "user" and "system" xattr namespaces...

Then ext4 supports both the "user" and "system" xattr namespaces. I think is necessary to add a note recommending the use of ext4 to avoid recompile the kernel and change the order of this note to the begin because when you install a system, one of the first steps is select the file system.

To support ACLs in the system is necessary add the option "acl" in your "/etc/fstab". For example:
/dev/hda3 /home ext3 user_xattr,acl 1 1

Is correct??
Is necessary install "acl" package??
