I have found some hints to this being done though no details.  I have experimented with NTFS and found that most of the attributes and modified/accessed dates are preserved.

Mount the filesystem with extended attributes supported,
then set:

	ea support = yes
	store dos attributes = yes
	map readonly = no
	map archive = no
	map system = no

in the [global] section of your smb.conf.
