SMB signing and smbmount (actually, the smbfs kernel-side) are
incompatible.  I will try to alter the source code to ensure it is made
clearer (and that you can't attempt to re-enable it).  

We have recently made some very good progress, such that smbclient
should always able to negotiate signing.

If you want an SMB signed connection, you need to use the CIFS VFS
module, already in the Linux Kernel 2.5, and available as a patch to 2.4
