I would note that while Samba 3.6 was the first release to officially
support SMB2, it was not on be default until Samba 4.0.

This may make it much harder to justify as SMB2-specific fix into

A backport of Samba 4.x might give you a fix faster.

All that said, there was a point I thought when new Samba versions were
being allowed into Stable fairly easily, due to the Samba Team's policy
of fixes only, if that was the case and is no longer the case, that's
unfortunate.  A lot of important fixes made it into Samba after 3.6.6.
