[Bug 76852] Re: auto mount of smb share fail after suspend

Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and help to improve

I've tested this with hardy by mounting a filesystem from a remote samba
server, then suspending my laptop for 30 minutes and resuming.

'ls testmount' returns immediately when I run it post-resume; the only
glitch at all is a single line in /var/log/kern.log:

  Mar 15 15:24:27 dario kernel: [   23.099055]  CIFS VFS: No response
for cmd 50 mid 33

And the logs on the samba server show both a disconnection due to
timeout, and a reconnection after the laptop resumed.

So the current 'cifs' driver in the kernel correctly handles reconnects
on timeout; and the older 'smbfs' driver is no longer supported as of
hardy, instead mount.smbfs is provided as a wrapper around the cifs

I believe this bug can therefore be considered resolved.

** Changed in: samba (Ubuntu)
