Compiling SMBFS module in 3.10 kernel

I have an old system with kernel version 2.4 and I need to set up a SMB 
share with another system running 3.10.

Can anyone help me to compile a SMBFS kernel module in kernel version 3.10.
I checked online and it only has CIFS and found that SMBFS is deprecated.

Is CIFS backward compatible with SMBFS or do I need to compile SMBFS 
separately in the new kernel version.

Thanks and regards,
