SMB will not be making it into the 2.4 release.  It’s still too unstable.  That branch you pointed to however is very old and no longer represents the current development state of the SMB analyzer.  Probably the most up to date code today is in topic/vladg/smb but we know of a number of issues in that still.

SMB might be a larger task than you wish it were.  There are quite a number of dead ends and problems that you discover as you dig into the protocol more and more.  If you have spare development cycles and qualified developers, we’re certainly willing to talk. :)
