It seems that for some users that are used to smbclient, it is not clear
that mount.cifs never uses smb.conf for configuring client specific
parameters. So, let's add this information to mount.cifs man page.

Hi Steve, Jeff,

If the following mount.cifs doc patch makes sense, can this be
considered for merging? I have seen atleast a couple of bug reports that
reports that cifs is not honoring configuration setting in smb.conf.

Thanks,
