The above line being deleted marks the end of a table, so it shouldn't be
deleted (it should go after the part below).

Like I commented on one of the commit messages -- this doesn't make it clear

"Encrypt/decrypt" => "When possible, encrypt/decrypt".

Likewise for the ext4 documentation for this same mount option.
