Need Kernel That Supports CONFIG_CIFS_SMB311.

Solution In Progress - Updated -

Issue

When one attempts to mount a CIFS share using vers=3.1.1 or vers=3.11, one gets an invalid argument error and the share is not mounted.  Dmesg output shows that the CIFS VFS returns this error message: "Unknown vers= option specified: 3.11".
