That doesn't quite work. We can't just unconditionally return success
because we rely on -ENOPARAM being returned to parse the source option
back in vfs_parse_fs_param. I think ramfs may also be broken for the
same reason right now as well from reading the code. We also rely on the
fallback source parsing for file systems that do have ->parse_param.

We could do all this in squashfs but given other file systems that don't
have args will also hit this we could just make it generic. The following
works for me (under commenting and poor name choices notwithstanding)
