  The change is fine as such but looking at it I just wonder
whether it would not make sence to write in /proc/mounts options
corresponding to the real state of mount options and not what we
guess user has specified... Or does anybody see a sane usecase where
userspace would rather want to see the current output? ... maybe
when user wants to inspect /proc/mounts by himself.
