Just as additional background, the putfsent() in mount.c which
displays an fstab via mount -p is lacking in one serious way...
it only converts the numeric mount flags to strings.

It is possible to specify mount options in /etc/fstab,
or via mount -o which are strings that are passed down into
the kernel via nmount().  These strings *may* or *may not* be
converted to numerical mount flags, and maybe be stored
in the kernel as strings, depending on the filesystem.

This makes filesystem mount option parsing such a pain.
