That is a problem.
So far, mount options always override module and kernel config options.
So if mount option says inodex=on explicitly, it should be index=on.

The only way I see for you to tackle this is if nouuid option is independent
of index option, e.g. index=on,anon_uuid (or uuid=off).

But if kernel config has a way to turn this on, then module param and
mount option should have a way to turn it off.

Yes, that would be fine techicaly.
I am not sure if the fallback is helpful though.

Anyway, you would need to get approval from Miklos
on the option itself and how it behaves.

Thanks,
