indeed, found the bug..
sometime ago, we removed the manual update-initramfs call in
lh_chroot_hacks in order to optimize build-time. we only did the
update-initramfs there, in 99% of the cases uselessly (so we thought) as
a precaution because a lot of people are customizing the one or other
thing in the initramfs, but forget to regenerate it.
we therefore put notes that people should run update-initramfs manually
if they customize the initramfs (manually means, that live-helper is not
doing it automatically by itself; of course the proper way is to symlink
now, since the initramfs gets prepared in lh_chroot_hacks for netboot,
and no update-initramfs is called, you'll not get mount.cifs (and some
other settings) into the initramfs.
really sorry about that, that should not have got unnoticed for so long.
