It's complaining about a missing header file.  I'm not sure whether 
it's missing from the samba source or the kernel source (I suspect 
the latter).  Make sure you have the complete kernel source tree 
installed (in the right place).  To find where that function is 
defined, grep through the samba and kernel source looking for the 
above function name.

Hope this helps, Steve
