Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: smbfs

Looking at smbfs 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3 in Intrepid.

Samba's CIFS kernel module (as invoked via mount.cifs(8), in smbfs)
makes use of the kernel's new request-key infrastructure, but there is
nothing at the package-description level to indicate the critical
relationship with the keyutils package.

Given that /sbin/request-key et al. is required in order for certain
shares to work at all (notably, those with DFS components, which at a
minimum need the dns_resolver upcall key), I think a strong (if not
absolute) dependency should be noted.

** Affects: samba (Ubuntu)
