[Samba] mount.cifs: iocharset/codepage

I am trying to access a share on a samba server using charset
iso8859-1 from a client using the same charset via CIFS.
"smbmount" has separate options for the server/client charset,
using "codepage=cp850,iocharset=iso8859-1" gets the correct
behavior in my case.

Unfortunately, the parameter for specifying the server codepage
doesn't seem to exist in "mount.cifs" (it looks, like utf-8 is
assumed). Is there any way to explicitly set this?
