There is no special support for samba in the kernel (or?), so what do you
mean by that? smbfs is a client (assuming that is what you meant) and is
not directly linked to samba as a server.

For someone to be able to help you I think you'll have to provide some
more info. Check your logs (samba, kernel, ...) for messages you don't see
under 2.2.
