You can resolve the issue by allowing the specific kext (e.g.: smbfs.kext) to be loaded by non-root processes. This is done by editing the Info.plist file that's included with the kext, usually at /path/to/kext-name.kext/Contents/Info.plist.

Open a Terminal.

Locate the kext and edit its Info.plist file.In our example, this would be the file: /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext/Contents/Info.plist  ...
