    These options are ignored. linux/fs/ext2/super.c from 2.2.18-pre17:

    /* Silently ignore the quota options */
    else if (!strcmp (this_char, "grpquota")
    || !strcmp (this_char, "noquota")
    || !strcmp (this_char, "quota")
    || !strcmp (this_char, "usrquota"))
    /* Don't do anything ;-) */ ;
    else {
    printk ("EXT2-fs: Unrecognized mount option %s\n",
    return 0;

    Don't mount so many filesystems, or don't use so many no-op options :)
