Ok I see. What alternative do you propose for Samba ? Should
we just disable quota support on Linux and tell people to use
an OS with real quota support ? This would not be good for many
of our users.

Sounds good to me. So do you recommend Samba users requiring quota
support migrate to FreeBSD, OS/X, Solaris, IRIX or HPUX (all of
which provide quota support without having to include kernel header
files :-) :-) ?
