Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for taking the time to confirm my suspicions regarding the patch.
Any chance this could still be merged?

I tried to manually patch the source myself using the diff I found in the
thread, but I am not sure I am using the correct technique to patch the
source code.  I copied the diff into a file and ran the following command
in the samba directory ( /samba-4.0.7# patch -p1 0001-volume-id.patch ).
I didn't receive any errors, but it never finished until I manually killed
