And what does /proc/mounts say?  That'll tell you what is actually set
on the superblock.  Works here, on 4.1.0-rc2:

# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/test
# mount -o remount,lazytime /mnt/test
# grep sdb1 /proc/mounts 
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/test ext4 rw,lazytime,seclabel,relatime,data=ordered 0 0

# dmesg | tail -n 2
[516203.450943] EXT4-fs (sdb1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
[516211.222020] EXT4-fs (sdb1): re-mounted. Opts: lazytime
