That's a bug in samba then. glibc can do nothing about kernel headers
conflicting with it's own headers. The practice of mixing kernel headers
in userspace programs is discouraged for this very reason.

Try remove the include for linux/fs.h in samba, see what is missing that it
needs from this file. Then copy the parts of linux/fs.h that it does
need, to a file local to samba, and then include that.
