Patch: Let smbtorture run when EAs are not supported

I forgot (and Volker reminded me) that I needed to use NT_STATUS_EQUAL
in that status check.  I did that in a later commit but forgot about
that when I extracted this change from other work.  Attached is a new
patch.  This one passes gitlab.
Volker reviewed and did some testing.  (Thanks!)
