You raised the OMV distro, not me and also said that they were moving to
only use btrfs with their next major release. You also said that they
wouldn't/couldn't help you. You stand more chance of getting a
workaround with help from a distro. This is because your problem isn't
really a Samba problem, quotas work on Samba, just not with btrfs.
