It's worth noting (as I reported on #531748) that autofs4 came with such functionality and you can actually use the /etc/auto.smb from autofs4 with autofs5 to get the credentials facility back.

Something like this should do the trick

makes more sense instead of having just a file with the credentials, you could just have a file with additional parameters.
You can of course then include the credentials with username=xxx,password=xxx
this way you can include other options that you might need such as uid,gid, nounix etc
