[Samba] ANNOUNCE: cifs-utils release 4.5 available for download

Hash: SHA1

The rate of incoming patches has been pretty low lately, so it's
probably a good time to do a new stable release and get what's queued
up into people's hands...

This release consists of a couple of bugfixes and some (hopefully)
non-user-visible cleanups to the mount.cifs code.

    mount.cifs: clean up option parsing
    Moved option string parsing to function parse_opt_token(char*). Main
    loop in parse_options(const char*, struct parsed_mount_info*)
    transplanted to a switch block.
    The parsing function folds common options to a single macro:
            1.) 'unc','target', and 'path' -> 'OPT_UNC'
            2.) 'dom*' and 'workg*' -> 'OPT_DOM'
            3.) 'nobrl' and 'nolock' -> 'OPT_NO_LOCK'
    Kept 'fmask' and 'dmask' (OPT_FMASK, OPT_DMASK), which fall through to
    'file_mode' and 'dir_mode' in the main loop.

    mount.cifs: turn into a multicall binary for smb2
    mount.smb2 has different help (many fewer mount options) and different
    fsname, but otherwise can reuse all of the good work Jeff did on
    mount.cifs. This patch allow mount.cifs to detect if run as mount.smb2
    (to display different help and fsname).

commit 400ebcb3bea6f21678b9e656d930a14bbd71fe7a
Author: Scott Lovenberg <>
Date: Tue May 11 09:32:34 2010 -0400

    mount.cifs: removed magic number for max username in parse_options
    Replaced max username in parse_options with the sum of its potential
    parts for "domain/user%password" formatted values. Note that forward
    slashes still expand to a double back slash in the parse_username
    function, though.
