Note: cookie cutter response follows:

The smbfs module is maintained through the kernel development people, 
they would best know the answer to your question, or if there is no answer.

Old and busted: smbfs
New hotness: cifs

While the cifs module is also not maintained here either (I'm pretty 
sure), it's much better and often times solves the issue of the day.  
Try to use it to mount your share and see what happens.
