If you're interested in Samba on Solaris could I put
upon you to test this patch ?

It's an implementation of Solaris ports as a tevent
background. I've sent this to the Oracle Samba Solaris
maintainer but got no feedback. I'd love to know if
this helps with Samba running on Solaris.

It still applies to current master. Feedback most
welcome !
