    SubjectRe: request for patches: showing mount options

    These options control *who* may mount and *when* to mount. They are
    not a property of the mount itself and are not added to /etc/mtab.

    There's a "user=ID" option that is added to /etc/mtab in case of user
    mounts. This identifies the owner of the mount, so that it can be
    unmounted by that user. There are patches in -mm that enable the
    kernel to store this info.

    Do you have other examples in mind?
