Another change to support Buildroot 2018.05.
The Samba config security option should change from

security = share


security = user

But when you do this it fails to create a file because of a missing directory: /var/lib/samba/private/msg.sock The init script needs to create this directory if it doesn't exist (which it probably won't on each boot) before starting the daemons.
