[Samba] Migration to vfs_fruit with existing AppleDouble files?

Okay so that's egg on my face, I was testing as a read only user on my test
server and since vfs_fruit only has the same access as the user running
samba, it wasn't able to copy the finderinfo from the old ._ file into a
file extattr.

Once I ran it in read/write it adapted the file as expected.

Sorry for wasting your time and thanks again for all of your help.
