smbfs confusion

My apologies in advance if this is considered off-topic, but I'm trying to
install a Linux devel kernel (2.1.53) and Linus' CHANGES doc tells me I
need smbfs 2.1.0 to compile the SAMBA stuff.

Installed SAMBA: 1.9.18p5-50.6
Installed smbfs: 2.0.1-2

Question is: I can't find any smbfs code later than 2.0.1-2 on  I've looked at the SAMBA pages and used the search
facility there to no avail. Where can I find smbfs 2.1.0?

When I compile I end up with:

/kernel/head.o arch/i386/kernel/init_task.o init/main.o init/version.o \
        arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o arch/i386/mm/mm.o kernel/kernel.o mm/mm.o
s.o ipc/ipc.o \
        fs/filesystems.a \
        net/network.a \
        drivers/block/block.a drivers/char/char.a drivers/misc/misc.a
t/net.a \
a /usr/src/linux-2.1.53/arch/i386/lib/lib.a \
        -o vmlinux
fs/filesystems.a(smbfs.o): In function `smb_encode_path':
smbfs.o(.text+0x12a): undefined reference to `i_dentry'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1
