Nothing Earth-shattering here, but it has been quite some time (well
over a year!) since the last release.

There has been little activity other than a few minor bugfixes. But,
this is probably a reasonable time to do a release that to make things
easier on the packaging folks:

    mount.cifs: ignore x-* mount options
    x-* prefix is used for userspace mount options and it's pretty
    commonly used to extend fstab configuration in systemd world (e.g.
    x-systemd.automount). These options is necessary to ignored.
    The command mount(8) does not pass x-* mount options to mount.<type>
    helpers, but in some use-cases it's possible that the cifs helper reads
    mount options from fstab or users directly call mount.cifs and copy & past
    mount options, etc.
    This patch marks all options prefixed by "x-" as OPT_IGNORE to make
    things more robust for end-users. We already uses the same concept for

    autoconf: Use $(DEFS) when building idmapwb.so and pam_cifscreds.so
    We should pass the macros defined in $(DEFS) when building idmapwb.so
    and pam_cifscreds.so. The autoconf process sets the macro HAVE_CONFIG_H
    using the $(DEFS) variable. This macro has to be defined to allow the
    source files to include config.h
