Looks good to me. I did some small unit testing to observe the
behavior. Below logs are *with your patch applied* for nolazytime e.g.
which you referred above. But without your patch, as you mentioned
nolazytime was not taking into effect.

           mount  8635 [007]  5477.595642:      probe:ext4_remount: 
(ffffffff813bd270) s_flags=0x72810000 flags=0x0 data_string="i_version"
            mount  8635 [007]  5477.595672:  probe:ext4_remount_L55: 
(ffffffff813bd3d1) s_flags=0x70010000 flags=0x0 data_string="i_version"
            mount  8635 [007]  5477.595758: probe:ext4_remount_L217: 
(ffffffff813bd787) s_flags=0x70810000 flags=0x0
            mount  8635 [007]  5477.595772: probe:ext4_remount_L246: 
(ffffffff813bd820) s_flags=0x70810000 flags=0x800000



Please feel free to add.
