I think it's just
mount -t cifs -o username=whatever,password=key //pepe/testdata /testdata

Locking coordination. :)
I believe that, in general, the semantic differences between SMB and NFS
shouldn't be a problem in your situation. The one area that this might be
an issue is the same area you're already dealing with: locking.
I don't know enough about NFS locking semantics, so I don't know how
byte-range locking is handled. Given the type of file you're dealing
with, you need byte-range locking to work across all protocols and within
the local system.
