mount.cifs // /mnt -o rw,setuids,nodev,user=steve2

Any file created in the share is always owned by steve2 (or the person 
who mounted the share).

According to man cifs(8), the setuids overrides this but doesn't seem to 
work for us. We'd like it to be the same behavior as nfs if that's possible.
