When the cifs module is loaded check for LinuxExtensionsEnabled in proc:

  ls /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled

If it's there turn it off (this will be on the machine with root:root):

  echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled

I guess the other machine has an older cifs which does not have Linux
Extensions or is using smbfs. check with the 'ls ...' line above.
