I must reply to my own post.

Changing the fruit:locking to "none" results in a working share.

Netatalk 3.1.6 is installed and from the information of the changelog Netatalk 3.1.7 doesn't change anything to the file locking (except if you're using Solaris).

i'm running Samba 4.2.1 compiled from source on an Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS Server. ACL/XATTR is active and working. I tried to activate the vfs_fruite module and added the sample code:

vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr
fruit:resource = file
fruit:metadata = netatalk
fruit:locking = netatalk
fruit:encoding = native

to the share. In addition i tried the following share definition:

vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr
fruit:locking = netatalk
streams_xattr:prefix = user.
streams_xattr:store_stream_type = no
kernel oplocks = no

The other definitions i use are:

admin users = @filetest
valid users = @filetest
writable = yes
guest ok = no
force user = root
force group = basegroup
create mode = 0775
directory mode = 0775

It is not possible to write to the share at best at the first time i click on save. Sometimes i get 0 Byte files and with a plain text file the initial content is saved. Trying to save a file again results in an error that writing to the share isn't possible (resource busy says TextMate ...).

When starting up Samba i see this error:

Apr 25 12:09:28 SERVERNAME smbd[13730]:   error reading meta xattr: Operation not supported

Which is somehow funny as XATTR are definitely working, followed the instructions in the last past:

Maybe this error could help resovle the issue:

Apr 25 12:12:25 SERVERNAME smbd[13914]: [2015/04/25 12:12:25.841615,  2] ../source3/modules/vfs_fruit.c:902(ad_header_read_rsrc)
Apr 25 12:12:25 SERVERNAME smbd[13914]:   Operation not supported: bad size: 0

I really hope Ralph Böhme could help here.
