Hmm, this has gone back to the "Mount options" concept from v1
which I don't think is appropriate. In v2 feedback I had suggested
that we should have some more explicit XML description for the subset
of options we wish to support, with each option potentially using a
different syntax, no generic mount options syntax.

For 'ro' we should use our normal  <readonly/> empty element syntax.

For nosetuid, nodev, noexec, I'm still inclined to say we should
enable them by default. Despite it being a semantic change, I think
it is the right thing for a volume that is being used for storing
VM disk images.

If we did want it in the XML though, I think it should be via a
<features> element, not <mount_opts>, as the inverse - iow opt-in
to the insecure behaviour

  <features>
      <allow-suid/>
      <allow-devnode/>
      <allow-exec/>
  </features>

This provides a generic framework that will work for other storage
pool backend features where there's no mount concept involved eg
LVM, iSCSI, etc

Daniel
