The Filesystem resource script currently doesnt work for smbfs
filesystems. I made the following changes to Filesystem.in to get it
running. I dont know if it is worth to be included in the source as I
suppose smbfs is not used very often. It depends on smbfs being the only
file system with "//" style device names. I am not sure if this is
distinct enough in practice, too.
