So I can confirm the issue is both present in 4.19.185 and 5.4.110
upstream (without any Debian patches applied, we do not anyway apply
any cifs related one on top of the respetive upstream version).

The issue is not present in 5.10.28.

So I think there are commits as dependency of a738c93fb1c1 ("cifs: Set
CIFS_MOUNT_USE_PREFIX_PATH flag on setting cifs_sb->prepath.") which
are required and not applied in the released before 5.10.y which make
introducing the regression.
