Summary0007910: Mounting old SMBv1 share fails

I am unsure if this is a duplicate, I can't use a search on the bug tracker (Dorks not working either).

sudo mount -t cifs "//" localdir --verbose -o guest,vers=1.0

Will fail with "mount error(6): No such device or address" because the SMBv1 got patched out of Linux Kernel 5.15. So Kali Linux drops connections to SMBv1 Servers

However, there is a backport patch on, not sure if its upstream and in Kali Repos (see add. info)

Regards --

Steps To Reproduce

see description

Additional Information

Tried using the vers=1.0 (for smb version) option for mount, will fail too.
