I have a samba share on a raspberry pi running with debian jessie. On my laptop with archlinux, I used to mount this samba share with the following command line:
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=xxx,uid=1000,gid=100,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm // /home/xxx/xxx
It worked fine until the recent upgrade to kernel 4.13.3-1.

Now the command returns an error:
mount error(22): Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

I am convinced this is a bug of the kernel because when I boot on the lts kernel I can mount the samba share without problem. Downgrading the kernel also works.

Additional info:
* package version(s) : linux 4.13.3-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Boot with the kernel linux 4.13.3-1 and try to mount a samba share in console.
This task depends upon

Thanks a lot. I didn't see this information. vers=2.1 works fine.
