tests: remove python_dependencies for smbserver from our tree #5094
Users of the SMB tests will have to install impacket manually.
Reasoning: our in-tree version of impacket was quite outdated
See also #5085 for the previous discussion leading into this PR.
Users of the SMB tests will have to install impacket manually. Reasoning: our in-tree version of impacket was quite outdated and only compatible with Python 2 which is already end-of-life. Upgrading to Python 3 and a compatible impacket version would require to import additional Python-only and CPython-extension dependencies. This would have hindered portability enormously.
