Does anyone have an archive of "samba-common_4.7.3+dfsg-1_all.deb"? That seems like it may be missing piece for installing the older samba 4.7.3 for now on alpha (the binary packages still being present in the archive).
snapshot.debian.org seems to still have it on:

Thanks, Frank! I'd forgotten about snapshot.debian.org. That worked, the older samba 4.7.3 is installable on alpha (and my fileserver is up!)

My understanding is that it's not initramfs-tools that mounts all the (non-root) local filesystems, but systemd (which it looks like you've reported as a bug elsewhere). I was able to pseudo-fix this by changing the fs_passno field in /etc/fstab to '0'.
This tells us (or me, anyway) that systemd's logic for automatically
setting up and running "fsck.fstype" for local filesystems is broken.
I don't think the dynamic generation of services and dependencies for
handling local filesystems was part of the "special sauce" for systemd
versions prior to version 235-X, which was when things broke on my system.
I'm really surprised by that. Multiple local filesystems must be incredibly common across the installed base of systems. I see no sign that what's failing is arch/alpha-specific, but surely this can't be a universal bug?!

Have I mentioned today how much I detest "systemd"? :-)
I'm trying to keep an open mind, but I will say that I found init scripts a good deal easier to reverse-engineer the logical flow and debug.

Another problem I'm seeing is that /var fails to unmount at shutdown. Only /var, not my other local filesystems.

This will get solved eventually, but it would get solved more quickly if the case of multiple local filesystems was more common today.
I've heard word that /usr destined to be going away, but frankly I'm very surprised that multiple local filesystems is a rarity these days. The debian installer even creates these semi-automatically. It is seriously the case that "everyone" has /var and /tmp on the root filesystem?
