Need Help regarding tellDir support on samba for Android

Dear Group Members

I am working on providing samba share on my customized Android device.
I am able to share a directory but when I drop a file from windows machine to shredFolder through the network, It doesn't allow.
I see the file is getting created on the device but the content of the file is not copied means file size on the device is zero.

Here is the log.smbd pointer:

telldir not implemented on Android

  STATUS=daemon 'smbd' finished starting up and ready to serve connections PANIC (pid 26576): sys_set_vfs_quota: called with NULL pointer

I need help to fix this issue urgently.
How can we provide tellDir support on Android. Do I need to make some code replacement in samba wherever tellDir is used?

Please let me know the solution.

Thanks & regards,
