I don't think that is possible without modifying CUPS.
The smbspool is a CUPS backend that it's executed by CUPS, all backends
receive the same parameters and the -k is not in that list.
CUPS should also be aware that it's using a smb backend to add that
extra parameter. All other backends doesn't need that -k. This will make
CUPS not to behave the same way with all the backneds and that is not
I think there is no need for this extra parameter, if you don't get the
credentials in the $DEVICE_URI you can try to get them from kerberos,
and if it fails you can always try to perform an anonymous authentication.
