bool "cifs-utils"
The in-kernel CIFS filesystem is generally the preferred
method for mounting SMB/CIFS shares on Linux. The in-kernel
CIFS filesystem relies on a set of user-space tools. That
package of tools is called cifs-utils. Although not really
part of Samba proper, these tools were originally part of
the Samba package. For several reasons, shipping these tools
as part of Samba was problematic and it was deemed better to
split them off into their own package.
