[PATCH 0/2][Xenial SRU] Fix for cifs submount regression

We have a regression in cifs submounts similar to a previous regression
in nfs. We merged a sauce patch which fixed only nfs, but after that a
more generic patch was merged upstream which fixes the cifs regression
as well, so revert our original fix and apply the upstream one.

I've tested this to verify that both nfs and cifs submounts are working
