Yes. This is the correct solution. You are in the position of
trying to maintain an out-of-tree module. The Linux kernel
has shown how much of a bad idea this is.

You need to move it into Samba proper, and commit to maintain
it upstream - just like we do with Andreas's xxx_wrapper code.

You should patch *upstream* first, then merge back downstream
once you have run local tests.

But Samba isn't part of FreeIPA and we can't commit to maintaining
internal API's for you, sorry.
