Make mount not try to modify kernel structures. Make some defaults setup
for smbfs with root priviligies (mount something before mounting that
share). Or make the same with sudo.

PS I don't think that usermount is something really useful, it looks
much more like one big security hole.

I abhor a system designed for the "user", if that word is a coded
pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated".  -- Ken Thompson
