  CIFS client: access problems after updating to kernel 4.4.0-29-generic

  SRU Justification

  Impact: A regression in the xenial kernel causes EPERM to be returned
  when accessing dfs subfilesystems in a cifs mount.

  Fix: Upstream cherry pick which uses the appropriate credentials for
  these automounts.

  Regression Potential: The fix involves reverting a sauce patch to fix
  a similar problem in nfs, but it's replace with a more generic fix
  which fixes cifs as well. I have tested with both nfs and cifs
  submounts and confirmed that both work as expected.


  Expected: being able to mount subfilesystems via cifs mount.
  What happens: permission denied even though there is permission

  I am denied access to the subfilesystems on a samba server. The top
  level filesystem itself is unaffected but dfs links seem to run into
  'Operation not permitted' problems. When accessing the subfilesystem
  on the mount as root it mounts correctly. The standard user is then
  also able to access the subfilesystem.

  This only happens when the client uses kernel 4.4.0-34 (#53). When I
  revert my client to an older kernel (4.4.0-21) everything works. Using
  the older kernel the normal user can directly ls into the
