Fully tested patches for Samba 4.13 were posted to the bugs, thanks to
my colleague Joseph Sutton of Catalyst. 

(We also thank our customers, including Univention, who funded our
backport work). 

Running 'make test' will confirm the testing, but isn't reliable on
small hardware (and is normally tested in parts, I can't promise it
would pass anyway), but you can test some tests with 'make test
TESTS=samba.tests.krb5' would run a subset that should confirm things.
