I have compiled samba v2.2.9 without ACL support and when I test skel vfs
module I have encountered internal errors (SIGSEGV in child processes).

Consider the file source/samba/vfs.c:
struct vfs_ops default_vfs_ops = {
        /* POSIX ACL operations. */
#if defined(HAVE_NO_ACLS)

As we may see if we have not ACL support, chmod_acl and fchmod_acl structure
members became NULL. But skel VFS module lacks of check for it.

So, I suggest the following patch:
diff -ur samba-2.2.9/examples/VFS/skel.c samba/examples/VFS/skel.c
