[Samba] Slow performance with lots of files in one directory

I've got performance problems with copying small files over to a Samba
share in a directory that has lots of small files (10000 to 20000
files). It takes too long time to copy new files (they drip in at a fast
pace), and smbd eats a lot of CPU time.

Is there any way to make Samba run faster in this situation?
