While we're bashing mount, how about having mount complain about and then
ignore invalid/unsupported mount options? Booting a kernel without quota
support on a box that normally has quota, mount won't mount any partition
that has quota options...at least not on my old systems:

(u)mount: version from util-linux-1.10
