If you a fan of DHCP, which is totaly fine, then you should look better into
what DHCP affects. 

The reason of you smbd reloading is this one. 

On every DHCP update, it call that file. 

Now i wont even touch that file also, you could have set the DHCP lease time also 
to a day or a week.

Still, i would recommend static ip.
