Hi there!

When I mount a SMB partition like

mount //host/share /mnt/share

mount complains that the kernel does not support the smb filesystem. Of
course, it all works well if I add -t smbfs as an option. But why does
mount recognise that I want to mount an SMB partition but fails to
understand that it needs smbfs instead of smb?
