It's surprising to me that a regression like this is not considered a bug. Requring special options is not a bug; changing the defaults for no apparent reason is. Changing the default from noserverino to serverino means that every person with an existing installation that mounts SMB/CIFS shares will have to know about this and modify their fstab manually during any upgrade, or their shares will appear to be broken. That's hardly friendly. I know that NFS mounts did a similar thing with some of their defaults in the 3 -> 4 transition, but I don't really think that's a good model to follow and there was actually some justification for that. Is there some reason to have changed the default options used by CIFS mounts?
