The Linux CIFS client has had kernel support for IPv6 since early 2007. Up until now it has been necessary to specify an IPv6 address with the ip option. IPv6 name resolution was not supported.  A new patch from Erion’s David Holder provides IPv6 name resolution in the mount.cifs command.

The mount.cifs patch can be found at IPv6 Name Resolution Patch for Linux CIFS Client.
