smbfs.ko: netbios-dependent

Far as I can determine, the smbfs module does not support hostnames or
ip addresses. This presents a severe limitation for using smbfs over an
internetwork. At the very least, I'm wondering if it supports static
mappings from a local file. Are there any plans to expand functionality
in this area?
