Steve and Jeff (cc'ed) would be best suited to answer your cifs.ko
In terms of where to start, I'd suggest pulling down the latest mainline
kernel source tree with Git, building a kernel with CONFIG_CIFS enabled,
and then attempting to mount a Samba or Windows share.

Documentation/filesystems/inotify.txt may be worth a read if you're
interested in change notification support.

Cheers, David
