util-linux now supports mount helpers being in /usr/bin, so there is no need to keep these in /sbin.

As of commit "cifs-utils: allow specifying rootsbindir at configure time" this is i simple configure switch in cifs-utils.

This would (afaict) move all of this package into /usr so should make the eventually /{s,}bin -> /usr/bin move simpler.
This task depends upon
