This is not a viable solution (IMHO). Some kernels (the Linus
ones) just have broken 32 bit uid support in quotas (so Alan
Cox says). The RedHat ones at least have working quota support
I believe.

This mess needs to be fixed in Linux, not Samba. In the meantime
we will need to include whatever system headers provided to get
working quota support when creating binary packages on Linux
