Actually, right now in mainline it is not (btrfs_mount_root() has
an odd call of security_sb_eat_lsm_opts()); eventually we will be
down to just the callers in ->parse_monolithic() instances, at which
point the above will become correct.  At the moment it is not, so
consider the objection withdrawn (and I really need to get some sleep,
seeing how long did it take me to recall the context... ;-/)
