Via the discussion thread on
https://lwn.net/Articles/518306/ I found the link to the
OS/X fork manpage:

Despite the link pointing at ios, the text says it is the
OS/X manpage for fork(2).

Look at the CAVEATS section. That is likely one of the more
technical reasons why Apple switched to something but Samba.
For us it does not make any sense at all to even try to
revive smbd on OS/X in its current architecture.

With best regards,
