Well, using it along with all other upstream patches:

...gives me this when I build the package:

Compiling client/mount.cifs.c
client/mount.cifs.c: In function 'get_password_from_file':
client/mount.cifs.c:324: error: 'EX_SYSERR' undeclared (first use in this function)
client/mount.cifs.c:324: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
client/mount.cifs.c:324: error: for each function it appears in.)
The following command failed:
gcc -I. -I/tmp/buildd/samba-3.2.5/source  -O -D_SAMBA_BUILD_=3  -I/tmp/buildd/samba-3.2.5/source/iniparser/src -Iinclude -I./include  -I. -I. -I./lib/replace -I./lib/talloc -I./lib/tdb/include -I./libaddns -I./librpc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_GNU_SOURCE -Iinclude -I./include -I. -I. -I./lib/replace -I./lib/talloc -I./lib/tdb/include -I./libaddns -I./librpc -I./popt -DLDAP_DEPRECATED   -I/include -I/tmp/buildd/samba-3.2.5/source/lib -D_SAMBA_BUILD_=3 -fPIC -c client/mount.cifs.c -o client/mount.cifs.o

This EX_SYSERR appears in samba-3.0.36-CVE-2009-2948-1.patch...

I suspect this is something that got introduced between 3.2.5 and

....so, yet more investigation to do for all of us.
