Timur did submit a lot of patches upstream, so there should be less

This helps reduce the divergence and maintenance overhead in the long-

Of course I agree with you and I'm sure Timur did his best to achieve this.

Currently there are 49 patch files in the 4.8 port.
I really hope most of them is not needed anymore, but that's something someone who wants to compile 4.10 should check, because they might not only address compile-time errors, but also silent problems which will haunt you badly once you run Samba in a production environment.
