[ale] SOLVED - CIFS mounts failing

Remember a few months ago when I asked for help with Windows CIFS mounts
that normally worked, but sometimes failed?  Didn't matter if Linux or
Windows clients attempted access?  Didn't matter if a GUI tool or
mount.cifs was used.

The error was:
     mount: Remote I/O error

Found the solution today.  Registry entry needed on the Windows side.

    IRPStackSize DWORD 0x0000000f (15)

It is case-sensitive and after creating the IRPStackSize, need to
restart the "Services" windows service.  Then it works, immediately.
