smbfs is compiled in, not a module.
It's not serious enough to reboot for right now. As long as
it doesn't start to happen every night. If it does, then
the load average will go up by 1 every day and eventually hit
the point where sendmail and inn will stop accepting connections.
If that happens, I'll reboot.
