No current versions of FreeBSD include the patches at the above site - 
my understanding is that they may still require some work before they 
are ready for committing.

I've CC'd R. Imura (who produced the patches) who may be able to answer 
the question (as well as possibly help you with your issue).

I believe smbmount is Linux-specific, so I think your best chance is 
trying to get the patches mentioned above finalised for your use.
