[Samba] ACL support?

Is it still true that in order for a Linux hosted Samba server to have NT ACL 
support, the Linux box must have an ACL aware file system such as XFS or 
Andreas Gruenbacher's kernel patch ("POSIX ACL")? I read this in chapter 4 of 
"Teach Yourself Samba in 24 Hours". In the time since that book was written, 
has an easier method been developed, or has a Linux-distro-supplied ACL aware 
filesystem emerged?

I'd like to avoid a kernel compile if it can be avoided.
