samba client (smbmount, mount.cifs) and kerberos

I'm trying to mount a share of a windows server using kerberos.
I try:
mount.cifs //server_name/share mount_point --verbose -o sec=krb5

I receive this error:
mount error 38 = Function not implemented

According to information, krb option would be available from cifs version 1.48. (

My cifs version is:
modinfo /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko
filename: /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko
version: 1.52

Please, can you tell me if there is a way to mount on linux windows shares using kerberos?

What I try to do is: When a user connects to a linux computer, he will be mounted some shares from some servers automatically. And I don't want to use password (instead, I will use kerberos tiquets due to linux is integrated with Active Directory).
