Ok, understood. You want Samba to somehow limp along even
with the opaque module returning ENOSYS everywhere. This is
certainly a much larger task. But it's a very worthwhile
one. So we need to just start running in this mode and
eliminate panics one after the other...

I'm with you on the naming thing, I'm not sure how we are
supposed to handle the init_samba_module thingy. There's
some macro magic for builtin vs shared modules around. Can
you post them as two separate git format-patch patches?
