You do not need to patch your version of Samba, in fact if you did patch 
your version, you would have to recompile it anyway, so all you need to 
do is download a later version (why not move to 4.4.2 ?) compile this 
exactly in the same way as you did your original version, then stop 
Samba and install it over your original version i.e.

./configure --with-whatever-options-you-used-originally
service samba-ad-dc stop
make install
service samba-ad-dc start
