To clarify this option, if the original author provide a copy
under a less restrictive license, this copy would be acceptable.

Given that only a simple routine which implements (what I assume
is) a publicly documented algorithm, implementation from scratch
might actually be easier than attempting to sort out who the
original author of the samba code actual is.
