You set the equivalent setting with cifs using:

echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LookupCacheEnabled

then remount your share.  I can't verify that it will work, but that's 
the cifs approach for setting NFS's "noac" option.  Setting the ttl to a 
very small value on smbfs is functionally equivalent to the NFS/cifs
