English can be tricky. Please clarify. AIUI, the string "defaults" is a placeholder, unnecessary if
any other option is specified. Man mount doesn't make it clear to me. I can't recall ever including
it along with any other option. I've always assumed all defaults not explicitly overridden will be
used.
