Hi Laura,

I'm pretty sure this is a regression for all other filesystems
that used to check for unknown tokens and return an error from their
->mount/fill_super/etc methods before the conversion.

All filesystems that provide ->parse_param expect that ENOPARAM is
turned into an error with an error message. I think we are going to
need something a bit more involved in vfs_parse_fs_param(), or just
a dummy ->parse_param for squashfs that would always return 0.

Thanks,

Ilya
