There was at least one known oops at mount time with 3.0:

It should be fixed in mainline and the patches for that and another
mount time problem will be in the next set of stable kernels. You may
want to pull these two commits into your kernel and try again:



Patches applied to 3.0.1 and will try to mount the CIFS shares later today:

# patch -p1 < /home/war/cifs1
patching file fs/cifs/cifsfs.c
# patch -p1 < /home/war/cifs2
patching file fs/cifs/inode.c
