To add one thing to this discussion: You can always use the
smbmount utilities from 3.0, we (SerNet) will provide RPMs
out of these for quite a while. The decision to pull
smbmount from 3.2 was made at a time when it seemed clear
that Linux will drop smbfs.

And, the whole thing with OS/2 servers is really
unfortunate, but I honestly do think that cifsfs needs to be
fixed. It is just insane to have two versions of that file
system in the kernel.

If there is one man in the world who knows how to deal with
OS/2 servers, it is Steve French. So bug him harder :-)
