[linux-cifs-client] IPv6 support

The cifs-2.6.git tree now includes support for mounting with IPv6.   This
requires that CONFIG_CIFS_EXPERIMENTAL be enabled and (at least until
mount.cifs is updated to the newer libc calls to be able to retrieve IPv6
from the equivalent of gethostbyname) requires passing the IPv6 address in
the mount options (with "ip=")

Thanks to David Holder for his suggestions and testing help over the past
few days.
