Ok. I understand.
But at the same time I don't think it is worth spending time in debugging the
failures from Mac client while accessing shares configured without fruit and
streams_xattr VFS modules given that these modules(rather recommended) can
handle Mac clients in its entirety. 

What do you think?

Samba 4.6.x has reached EOL and is the case with Gluster 3.12.x. Therefore I
suggest to keep your current setup with those VFS modules and report back in
of any issues.
