[Samba] sharing an autofs nfs mount

In our case we needed to mount the user home folders from the file server
and we could never get it to work with cifs - we would get permission
errors and a login loop in Gnome - autofs was complaining about not finding
the kerberos ticket. That's why we also use NFSv4 for Linux clients and
CIFS for Windows clients - it seems to work but there may be some issues
(with file locking?) that we are unaware. Interestingly enough CIFS works
in our nextcloud server.
Before installing the fileserver, we had an old ZFS storage system from Sun
which pretty much worked like this, it exported user home folders with both
CIFS and NFS but used SMBv1 which is depreciated.
