Will SAMBA 4.6+ ever be able to provision a DC on FreeBSD?  The last
bit of information I am aware of on this issue is that there is some
problem with name-spacing that impacts the special attributes used by
Windows User Profiles.  It is described as a 'difficult' problem to
solve on FreeBSD.

There is a patch provided at which
short-circuits the difficulty but apparently has possible security
issues.  Has anyone here applied this patch, built and successfully
provisioned a DC using Samba-4.6+ on FreeBSD-11?
