I need to restrict the access of a user to a single directory path on a CIFS mounted share.

The fstab entry is:
//device/Users   /share/users    cifs    iocharset=utf8,credentials=/root/.cifscredentials,noperm,uid=0,gid=10008,file_mode=0750,dir_mode=0750  0       0

I want a user to ONLY have read/write access to: //device/Users/share

How can I do this?
