It wastes some unswappable kernel memory. The log/error messages are bad
enough as they are ...

Probably better to do this in klogd and prefix the errno printouts with
something, the same trick used to get klogd to recognise what is a kernel
address and make it translate that into a symbol.

Would be easier too since klogd can use the strerror functions from glibc.

Or maybe just a note in the smbmount manpage ...
