Thanks, applied with an improved commit description:

    The macro MOPT_Q is used to indicates the mount option is related
    to quota stuff and is defined to be MOPT_NOSUPPORT when
    CONFIG_QUOTA is disabled.  Normally the quota options are handled
    explicitly, so it didn't matter that the MOPT_STRING flag was
    missing, even though the usrjquota and grpjquota mount options
    take a string argument.  It's important that's present in the
    !CONFIG_QUOTA case, since without MOPT_STRING, the mount option
    matcher will match usrjquota= followed by an integer, and will
    otherwise skip the table entry, and so "mount option not
    supported" error message is never reported.
